"As you know, Neversoft and Infinity Ward teamed up for the development of Call of Duty: Ghosts," Activision's Eric Hirshberg said in an internal memo. "And through that process, it became clear that the two studios have very complementary skill sets. Between these two excellent studios, it seemed like a single 'super-studio' could emerge."
The studio will be called Infinity Ward, as Activision has decided to drop the Neversoft name entirely. "While it will be strange to not see the Neversoft logo on future games, the important things--which are the Neversoft team’s talent, creativity, professionalism and commitment to creative excellence--all remain unchanged as part of this new chapter," the Activision exec added.
