Activision’s Worldwide Studios boss is “100 per cent confident” that Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward will “rise from the ashes” – but warns that the publisher must be careful in looking to rebuild the shaken outfit.
Dave Stohl told Develop that the company is “supporting Infinity Ward in that rebuilding process, [but] I use the term ‘support’ because as much as possible we don’t want to tamper with that group of people.”
He explained that simply throwing new staff at the studio would be dangerous for its culture and identity – something which has been thrown into disarray over the last five months.
“We want Infinity Ward to be Infinity Ward,” said Stohl. “It’s a very specific culture”.
