Treyarch, which has for a long time been seen as the underdog to Call of Duty series’ creator Infinity Ward, does not get the credit it deserves for the role it has played in the series according to Activision boss Bobby Kotick.
When a Joystiq interviewer referred to Treyarch as Call of Duty’s ‘b-team’, Kotick was quick to address the staement.
“That's an unfair view of Treyarch,” the exec explained. “You know it's not really an objective view. Treyarch contributed so significantly to the multiplayer technology that's in Modern Warfare 2 and they didn't really get the credit for that.”
