Activision Claims Treyarch Developed Modern Warfare Multiplayer
Speaking to CNN, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has claimed that Treyarch is responsible for much of Call of Duty's multiplayer, including content from Modern Warfare.
"Multiplayer has been largely developed by Treyarch," Kotick said. "I don't think Treyarch got their due for how much they contributed in the production and polish to the multiplayer."
This all comes just days after EA CEO John Riticello spoke out publicly in regards to Treyarch riding Infinity Ward's coat tails.
It seems pretty obvious that Kotick is out to villianize Infinity Ward and place the Call of Duty crown atop Treyarch's unworthy dome, but if anything he said were true, surely we would have heard about it over the past few years. Not to mention I don't remember seeing Treyarch pop up in either of Modern Warfare's credits. The reason no one likes Treyarch to begin with is because they ruined Call of Duty multiplayer with their attempt to copy Battlefield in Call of Duty 3.
Activision has also added EA to the Infinity Ward lawsuit, placing a $400,000,000 target on their back for allegedly unlawful business acts.
This drama just keeps getting better and better; too bad the same can't be said for the games.
