Treyarch is the “B-team”

The hits just keep on coming in the newly reignited Activision/ex-Infinity Ward chiefs battle royale. The latest round of smack talk comes from EA Partners boss David DeMartini who wonders what will happen with Infinity Ward now that Activision has decided to “blow up the creative guys that run the place”.

DeMartini also expects this year’s Call of Duty entry to be subpar, as usual, because the title is being handled by the “B-team,” aka Treyarch.

“The media has identified the non-Infinity Ward years as the B-team years, and just kind of picking that up from the media and looking at the review scores, they tend to drop down anywhere from 7-10 points in a non-Infinity Ward year,” he says.
