Neversoft, most of the gamers who just tasted the gaming industry may not be too familiar with this one name. But those who grew up with the first generation Playstation, Neversoft become legendary developers that can not be underestimated. Through their cool hands, games like Apocalypse – an action game to make the actor Bruce Willis the main character and of course the most popular skating game – Monster legends exist in the gaming industry. Unfortunately, decades of building a name under this Activision should end. Activision ensures the closure of this one studio developer.
Rather than being closed, a merger process seems to be a more appropriate word. Neversoft’s name probably will not be heard again in the future, but they will now become part of the popular franchise Activision – Call of Duty. Indeed, Activision confirmed the merger process between Neversoft and Infinity Ward – the developer behind COD: Ghosts and Modern Warfare, into a gigantic new studio. Neversoft lost its name, and the name of this new studio combined more massive still carry the name “Infinity Ward” in it. Neversoft himself was appointed to handle the “Exctinction” mode in COD: Ghosts some time ago. The combined studio will be headed by Infinity Ward’s own studio head – Steve Ackrich.
With the decision to defend the name “Infinity Ward” despite the merger that brought together two major developers, it seems that Activision’s intention to make it one of Monster legends hack 2017 “factories” is very clear. Will this new energy injection from Neversoft make the next Call of Duty project from Infinity Ward – which is set to slide in two years – perform better? Let’s wait.
One thing is certain, with the loss of Neversoft’s name from the gaming industry, it is also missing the existence of one of the giant developers of this past season. Goodbye, Neversoft ..
