Tony Hawk's Pro Skater developer, Neversoft, is now working on Call of Duty content.
You remember Neversoft right? After being picked up by Activision in 1999, the California-based developer struck gold with the excellent Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. It continued to pump out Tony Hawk titles on a yearly basis until Robomodo took over following a string of underwhelming titles. When Activision and Harmonix parted ways, Neversoft took over the Guitar Hero franchise. It released games on a yearly schedule until Activision put the series on hiatus back in 2010. Now, according to job listings on its website, Neversoft has been set loose on the Call of Duty series.
"We have molded our team into a crack squad of eager developers ready to push the first-person action genre in support of Activision's Call of Duty franchise," reads the website.
The developer is looking for a Senior Level Designer, Senior Environment Artist, and Senior Concept Artist. While Neversoft has supposedly been working on a "space FPS" for the past two years, the developer has only produced a handful of shooters in its 17-year history (one of which was the quite serviceable Gun).
No other details were given, so it's unclear if Neversoft will be producing stand-alone entries in the series, spin-offs or just helping Infinity war and Treyarch with their respective titles.
