The Blast Furnace headlines
Activision is in the process of conducting an employee consultation process with the staff at Leeds-based studio The Blast Furnace, which was behind the development of mobile title Call of Duty: Strike Team.
Call of Duty: Strike Team is now available for Android on Google Play for $6.99. The title was released for iOS last month and can be played alternately in first-person or top-down mode. It contains a single-player campaign and survival mode.
The new mobile Call of Duty game wasn’t rushed out; it was developed under conditions of strict secrecy, which is why its appearance on the scene seems so sudden.
Pitfall! the re-imagining of Atari’s retro classic has now gone free-to-play on iOS, and comes with a brand new Relic Rush mode to celebrate. It’s a third-person take on the original, with plenty of sliding, jumping, swinging, motorbike sections and the occasional whipping of snakes to enjoy. Check out the details and screens below.
What is The Blast Furnace? No idea, but Activision seems quite keen on it.
