Treyarch Now a CoD-only Studio

There was never much thought about whether there were more Call of Duty games in Treyarch's future after Black Ops, but we were suprised to learn that that's the only thing Treyarch will be working on in the future. Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said they've become solely dedicated to Activision's blockbuster FPS franchise.

"Treyarch is a 100 percent Call of Duty studio -- and it has been for a long time now, long before any of the Infinity Ward events occurred," Lamia said, immediately dispelling speculation this newly revealed exclusive focus may be a result of CoD creator Infinity Ward's gutting that we've mentioned many times on the show. "We focused all of our efforts on creating the best Call of Duty game we possibly can and what that meant is not working on anything else."

"We are a multiple team studio and focusing on Call of Duty and Call of Duty gameplay meant focusing all of our teams on that," Lamia continued. "Due to all this there has actually been a formation of an entire team dedicated to Multiplayer within Treyarch, which is something the studio didn't have for their past Call of Duty games, Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World at War."

Before being assigned to the CoD franchise, Treyarch had created games in a number of varied franchises, including Spider-Man titles, a few sports games, and even recently "official" game of the most recent James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace. But depending on just how long this exclusive focus lasts, it looks like Quantum of Solace is the last non-CoD title we'll have seen Treyarch make for quite some time.
