In that Treyarch
might be championing itself as the A studio again, because if what's being promised from this next Call of Duty
is to be believed, well, this might be the best one yet.
And who doesn't love a good conspiracy. Here's a snippet:
“The important thing for us was… we love Black Ops 1,” enthuses Raven’s Senior Creative Director, Dan Vondrak. “And the thought was -- we love the whole series -- but there’s this huge gap in time between Black Ops 1 and Black Ops 2. And [the era] has such a rich history, and for us to ignore all that felt wrong as fans.

“We LOVE Mason and Hudson and Woods and we couldn’t have imagined erasing that (their story), or re-writing it. So the logical thing for us was to write this love-letter to Black Ops 1 and make this game that can live between [Black Ops] 1 and 2 -- that was always our intention, to have the Black Ops that was there, and to build on top of it.
“The last thing we wanted to do was wash away all that awesome history.”
