Having worked on nothing but the Call of Duty franchise since 2008, Treyarch should be announcing a new videogame soon, right? Fat chance, says studio head Mark Lamia.
“Treyarch is a 100-percent Call of Duty studio — and it has been for a long time now, long before any of [the Infinity Ward] events occurred,” said Lamia.
All the studio’s efforts have been aimed towards making the “best Call of Duty game we possibly can,” aka Call of Duty Black Ops, which Lamia says meant they worked on nothing else. Having several teams in-studio didn’t change anything: “…focusing on Call of Duty and Call of Duty gameplay meant focusing all of our teams on that,” he says.
