The lights are on
The developer best known for working on Tony Hawk skateboarding titles is now creating content for the Call of Duty franchise. "We have molded our team into a crack squad of eager developers ready to push the First Person Action genre in support of Activision's Call of Duty franchise," the official website reads.
What's unclear at this time is if Neversoft is simply providing development support for Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Treyarch or creating a new game entirely. The developer as been hiring for an unknown first-person shooter project for over a year now, but it was speculated the game was a new, original franchise.
Other internal studios at Activision, such as Raven Software, helped create additional download content for Call of Duty: Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3.

oh no!! they cant even fix their own licenses but they will give us content for cod?? what a joke!
you were so great! you worked on guitar hero which was epic in its day, and awesome tony hawk games (THPS3 being the greatest imo). i always loved your silly intros when i popped in tony hawk, and u also created tons of extras, easter eggs, and dev videos and inserted them into your games as unlockables, etc. (remember "neversoft, always hard"? well i do.) i always thought u guys were solid, and had a great style. primarily cuz i grew up on tony hawk hehehe. but now you guys are spreading out into COD? are u serious? maybe u guys are a perfect example of when activision buys out a talented developer. that being said, i cant w8 to see what u guys do with the series. sincerely,

Cool, now we can have one in May and November each year...
Having another developer work on Call of Duty might not necessarily be a bad. By now we should all realize that Activision will continue releasing yearly Call of Duty titles until it stops becoming profitable and a new developer might help spark things up a bit if they are allowed to take some creative risks.
Screw you activision -_-
they do follow activision around. first tony hawk. then guitar hero. now call of duty
