Infinity Ward to Merge with Neversoft: May 2014 Announcement
IvisPlay began as a video game blog in May 2013, centered around the commentary of Hanz Ivis, a game developer and journalist. Since then, IvisPlay has grown to become a more ambitious project that seeks to bridge geographic boundaries between gamers and create a global community discussing the latest developments in the video-game industry.
In May 2014, the gaming press reported that Infinity Ward, developer of multiple games in the Call of Duty series, will absorb Neversoft, the developer of the Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk games. The merger came about after Infinity Ward and Neversoft partnered to develop the recent Call of Duty: Ghosts game.
The new studio will retain the Infinity Ward brand, due to that studio’s affiliation with the high-profile Call of Duty franchise. Several senior Neversoft executives, including its studio head and studio director, plan to depart the company in 2014 as a result. Dave Stohl, an executive vice president at parent company Activision, will take the lead at the new combined studio, with Steve Ackrich, currently the head of Infinity Ward, remaining in a senior position.
