Activision recently announced all of the company’s core studios are currently working on the hit video game franchise Call of Duty. As a result, Video Games Chronicle is reporting that almost 2,000 employees are contributing to the series.
This news comes after information was revealed about the latest title in the video game series. A trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard was unveiled by Activision on August 19th.
“If you have one giant 2,000-plus team all in one place, it’s going to be a very homogenous culture. In terms of the way the different studios work together, we don’t have radically different cultures necessarily, but there are a lot of subtleties in there,” said Andy Wilson, the chief operating officer of Sledgehammer Games. “Our priorities as a studio, our values as a studio — above all, we try to treat the team as adults. Transparency is important to us when we’re talking to the team. We’re open and honest with people. We have a culture of strong collaboration. That’s a necessity because we do work with different locations. Collaboration and communicating respectfully and efficiently is important to us.”
Call of Duty: Vanguard can be pre-ordered now on the COD website. The game is scheduled to be released on November 5th, 2021.
The Profit‘s Take:
It’s official. Activision-Blizzard has given up on making any new games. Activision-Blizzard is basically going to become the “Call of Duty company” over the next five years.
