"crack squad of eager" devs now assigned to the first-person genre.
The studio made the announcement on its website but didn't specify if they'd be in a support role or if they'd get to create their own project within the series. What about that space rumour?
It was said that NeverSoft had a sci-fi first-person shooter in the works and at the time was coined as Call of Duty in Space by some circles. Still they could be helping Treyarch.
"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," said a studio statement. The next instalment to the series is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 from Treyarch and it's certainly classified as sci-fi with its fancy remote drone armada.
Could NeverSoft's sci-fi shooter have been Black Ops 2 all along?
