Activision is merging together their Infinity Ward and Neversoft studios into a single unit, reports Giant Bomb, saying this is outlined in an internal memo from Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, which they vaguely explain they somehow "obtained." Hirshberg calls the result of this marriage a "super-studio" which will retain the Infinity Ward name. "The impact of their 20-year run of hard work and success cannot be overstated," said Hirshberg. "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 teamís talent, creativity, professionalism and commitment to creative excellence--all remain unchanged as part of this new chapter."
