Black Ops 2 Could Violate Agreement Between Activision and Infinity Ward


Game Informer reports that Black Ops 2 may violate an agreement between Activision and Infinity Ward.

Quote:
Treyarch’s Black Ops II marks the series’ first move into the future, but it also raises questions about the ongoing relationship between Activision and Infinity Ward. Over two years ago, details regarding the lawsuit began to appear publicly. One such detail stated that Call of Duty titles set after Vietnam would be exclusive to Infinity Ward. We recently obtained some court documents (which you can see below), and it appears that this clause was indeed included in Infinity Ward’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

I'd rather have Activision and Kotick suck it.

Nah, the COD fanboys won't buy into without the label.

Activision owns Infinity Ward and the agreement that all these gaming websites are referring to was a deal memo with the Infinity Ward owners who were later fired.

Thus, Activision needs not comply with an agreement with people who no longer own Infinity Ward and/or work at Activision/Infinity Ward.

I'm not sure who the idiot is who started this rumor, but it was bullshit from the very beginning and it is the worse kind of journalism. It is the kind of thing that makes real journalists look at video game news and shake their heads and laugh.

Oh come on, let's be honest. At this point they could just strip Call of Duty from the title, call it Black Ops 2, and people would still buy it in droves. Black Ops has enough name recognition to manage just fine.

Forget Call of Duty AND Black Ops. Just call it Modern Warfare 2012.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was about to say, ATVI owns Infinity so they should be able to do whatever turns Kotick on.

I used to hate ATVI, but my friend Kotick is slowly gonna make me rich with Diablo 3's auction house, Skylanders, and the neverending COD games.

If you can't beat'em, join 'em.
