The “Call of Duty” machine has claimed to own another studio.
Bob’s toyThe studio behind Crash Bandicoot 4, Spyro Reignited and many Skylanders games have become the support team for Call of Duty: War zone. Toys on Bob’s official Twitter account broke the news overnight.
“Toys for Bob is proud to support the development of Season 3 of Call of Duty: Warzone, and look forward to more to come,” tweet read.
Perhaps more surprising than this sudden shift is that it shows that Activision seems to have recently let go of many Toys for Bob developers, many of whom are responsible for Crash 4 and the studio’s recent work.
Character designer and illustrator Nicholas Kole (Nicholas Kole) revealed on Twitter that several employees were either let go or decided to leave the studio recently. “This is the end of an era, but I hope my former colleagues, with the help of TFB, all go well, everything goes well!” Coke write
Later Cole Add to He is at least happy that the studio has not completely closed. “Although everyone I interacted with and worked with has been let go, I am very happy that this has not completely disappeared.”
Activision did not announce a personnel change on Toys for Bob, but everything that seems to have happened at the beginning of this year. Cole left the studio in January.
According to reporters Liam Robertson, The studio is developing a multiplayer PvP crash game. It is not clear whether the project will continue, but Activision’s decision to move the team to Warzone strongly indicates that the project will not continue.
Overall, this move effectively turned all Activision’s studios into Call of Duty developers. The only remaining studio, Vicarious Visions, was recently acquired by Blizzard, working on the remake of “Diablo 2”.
Nevertheless, the great success of “Battlefield” (more than 100 million players per year) may be an important factor in Activision’s decision, even if it makes homogeneous products of various studios that used to work on different projects become homogeneous.
