Report – Black Ops 2 setting in violation of Infinity Ward’s contract

Wednesday, 9th May 2012 05:03 GMT By Brenna Hillier

GameInformer has hold of a set of legal documents which suggest the future setting of Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 may violate Activision’s contract with Infinity Ward. The primary franchise developer apparently retains the rights to any Call of Duty games set post-Vietnam. We’re no legal eagles, and you’d think Activision would have this covered, but it might be worth bearing in mind as the publisher continues its legal dispute with former Infinity Ward leads and Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella.

    Since when have journalists got that stupid ? IW is owned by Activision and so is Treyarch. And the fight with those two is about the series as a whole not a modernized or an old version of it.

    I would love to see Raven taking IW’s place. Science fiction CoD would be better than the shit done by IW.

    @1 But the whole Infinity Ward mess with Acti and these two guys is NOT closed yet. Court haven’t decided yet if Zampella and West have nothing do to with CoD and IW. So technically, they can do something nasty.

    They own IW yes, but that still means contracts are signed. If the deal in buying IW included certain conditions, like the one mentioned in the article Activision still have to hold up their end of the deal.

    Yeah , but it goes under the same thing. They ahve already started the fight with West and Zampella, this won’t change anything.

    Watch as Acti pulls a “Alternate Universe” out of its ass.
