Black Ops 2: Declassified Developer Could Be Activision Leeds – Report
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is heading to PS Vita at some point this year, and gamers have been speculating over what studio is developing the title – But it could well be Activision Leeds.
In a VideoGamer interview, Andy Payne – chairman of trade body UKIE – explained the studio’s role within the Call of Duty franchise.
Payne explained, “Activision are like a machine. I have to be careful what I say about these guys because I know them so well and they’ll cane me.”
“But Activision are a machine. They’re very good, and you know what, what people don’t realise with Activision is, the two studios working on the Call of Duty franchise are collaborative studios. That’s unheard of. All the assets are reusable, so they’re not wasting time.”
“Those assets are also going to be starting to be used by the mobile team, which is going to be based in Leeds.”
Payne also explained that Activision leeds would be developing “all handheld versions, iOS versions of Call of Duty”, which suggests the studio may have a hand in Black Ops: Declassified.
We’ve asked Activision for comment.
