Activision Leeds To Handle Future Mobile Call Of Duty Games?

iPhone News PS Vita iPad FPS Activision DS 3DS

There are reports that suggest that the newly created Activision Leeds will now take care of all mobile and handheld Call of Duty games. This claim was suggested by UK games industry expert Andy Payne, who comments that Leeds will be solely responsible for “all handheld versions [and] iOS versions of Call of Duty” in the future. This will not include Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified for the Playstation Vita, which is due out by the end of this year. Activision Leeds was only created in May. This means that, if it were Activision Leeds working on the Vita game, there would be only a maximum of seven months before release, too short for developing and publishing the game.

Payne also notes that the Leeds studio will have access to all Call of Duty assets. This is because the studios who have worked on the series are very collaborative. This means assets can be reused and exchanged if needed. Payne comments again, “The two studios are saying, ‘I need a tank, pull it off from the library’. And those assets are also going to be starting to be used by the mobile team, which is going to be based in Leeds.” The handheld Call of Duty games were previously developed by n-space, while iOS Call of Duty games were developed by Ideaworks.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
