Treyarch: We're 100% Focused On Black Ops
Activision always hypes up every Call of Duty entry but this time, it's the developer doing the talking.
Treyarch, currently toiling away on Call of Duty: Black Ops, are 100% focused on delivering the "the best game they possibly can." Studio Boss Mark Lamia told GamerZines that Black Ops isn't "just a game," but potentially the "best entertainment experience of the year." We're most interested in his mention of the single-player campaign; Treyarch wants the experience to include a "really intense cinematic campaign" along with the expected "deep and robust multiplayer experience." And as for the aforementioned focus, Community manager Josh Olin said that right now, it's all about CoD:
"It was a conscious decision. Two years ago we created three games, and it was a deliberate choice to stop work on everything but Call of Duty. It has a lot of ramifications internally in terms of how we structure our studio, but the reason behind that is that I wanted to be able to give the team the opportunity to create the best game they possibly can.
It's exciting and we'll probably make ourselves miserable at the same time as there's a lot of scrutiny on everything we're doing, but every decision has a laser sharp focus from everybody; from the tester to the person creating it, to the team that's involved in implementing something, to myself - everybody is just focused on this game."
We have no doubt that Treyarch is a very capable developer, and we're really looking forward to a total experience that still gives us the fantastic multiplayer we've all come to expect, along with a satisfying single-player campaign. It can be tough to get the best of both worlds but if anybody can do it...
