Activision Denies Rumors Over Infinity Ward

Activision is denying reports that developer Infinity Ward will become the sole craftsman of future titles in the vaunted and profitable Call of Duty series.

Citing an anonymous ex-employee from the soon to be defunct Activision Foster City studio, Next-Gen had reported that Infinity Ward had renegotiated its deal with Activision to become the sole maker of the shooter series following Call of Duty 5.

The publishing giant has deemed the assertion “erroneous.”

Call of Duty 5 is being developed by Treyarch, the studio behind what most gamers see as the most lackluster title in the series, the third iteration.

Infinity Ward was responsible for the extremely successful latest version, Modern Warfare, which broke away from the World War II theme many gamers see as played out – and which the fifth title will apparently return to.
