Despite Activision unveiling additional details on the Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified game for the PS Vita at E3, we still do not know who is developing the upcoming title. Bizarrely though, it seems that Black Ops 2 developers Treyarch do not know either if you can believe that.
We say ‘do not know’, but there is probably a element of suspicion to that claim as you would think it would be highly unlikely that one of the core developers for Call of Duty, simply ‘do not know’ who is extending the franchise on Sony’s new handheld.
That’s what Treyarch’s Director of Communications John Rafacz told VideoGamer in a recent interview though. He was apparently asked a direct question on whether Neversoft will be developing Declassified in conjunction with recent speculation online and Neversoft’s own omission that they are working on a Call of Duty game.
The whole project seems a bit disappointing at the moment though, based on the fact that we didn’t even get a sniff of gameplay at E3, or even an indication on when the game will be releasing other than ‘Fall 2012’. Since the PlayStation Meeting in 2011 when the game was first unveiled (for the then NGP), we haven’t really had any key details on the game which you have to say is a bit worrying.
What are Activision waiting for we wonder? We all know that the publisher likes to keep their reveals until the very last moment possible, but they could at least tell us who will be developing the game to give gamers an idea. It’s obviously not going to be Treyarch or Infinity Ward, so does that narrow it down to either Neversoft or Sledgehammer Games?
Activision hasn’t even unveiled any multiplayer footage yet for Black Ops 2. There’s teasing and then there is taking things a little too far. Are you starting to get a little frustrated on the lack of knowledge for Declassified on the Vita? If you had to take a guess – who do you think will be developing this game?
