Speaking with MCV on the matter, an Activision representative said it wants to “develop a plan that will enable them to remain as a team.’

“We met with The Blast Furnace this morning and are currently discussing options for their future,” an representative told the site. “The Blast Furnace is a very talented studio and has been a great partner to Activision.

“Our preference would be to keep the talented group of employees at The Blast Furnace together and develop a plan that would enable them to remain as a team.”

The development team includes former Rockstar and Team 17 veterans and was also responsible for mobile titles based on Pitfall and Wipeout.

    The call of duty strike team game was really meh cause of no MP. I’m hoping the team who made black ops zombies on mobile makes a new black ops 2 zombies and also makes an mp cod game with maps guns from like bo1 or bo2. The controls in black ops zombies was the best i’ve experienced in an fps game on mobile/tablet. My favorite part of it is how walking and sprinting worked, and also how aiming and firing just worked. In an fps game on a touch device you want as few buttons as possible.
