Infinity Ward Not Following In World At War's Footsteps
One might think that Treyarch and Infinity Ward, the studios that trade off on developing Call of Duty titles year in and year out, would work well together. Well, sometimes animosity and hostility begets better quality through competition rather than cooperation.
That, and it's just so much more fun for the media. According to Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling, Modern Warfare 2 won't be following in any of the footsteps blazed by last year's Call of Duty: World at War by Treyarch. "We're not taking any pages out of World at War's book," said Bowling. "We're crafting a special and unique experience for Modern Warfare 2 players that I don't want to spoil too much." As for the multiplayer details:
"Definitive numbers like max level cap, complete weapon lists, and number of new perks is something I don't want to ruin and save for when the player ranks up and sees they're constantly receiving new rewards for it, whether that's a new weapon, perk, killstreak unlock, or item for their callsign."

Now, Bowling and Treyarch Senior Producer Noah Heller haven't been on good terms lately, as Bowling even asked the media to ignore Heller and instead, pay attention to "someone who knows what the fu** they're talking about." Then he went and called Heller a "Senior Super Douche." ...that's a headline right there. The question now is, what will Treyarch do to top Infinity Ward next year?
