According to an Activision report sent to Giant Bomb, studios Neversoft and Infinity Ward are to merge together to become a "super studio" under the name of "Infinity Ward". Eric Hirshberg said in the report that:
- "As you know, Neversoft and Infinity Ward teamed up for the development of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and through that process, it became clear that the two studios have very complementary skill sets. Between these two excellent studios, it seemed like a single 'super-studio' could emerge.
- The impact of their 20-year run of hard work and success cannot be overstated. "As already mentioned, we are merging these two very talented teams and obviously had to choose a name for the combined studio. Since the Infinity Ward brand is indelibly tied to the Call of Duty franchise, it is the sensible choice. While it will be strange to not see the Neversoft logo on future games, the important things--which are the Neversoft team’s talent, creativity, professionalism and commitment to creative excellence--all remain unchanged as part of this new chapter."
