Activision announces agreement with Gray Matter and Treyarch for new WWII shooter for "the consoles"; publisher dismisses Xbox mention as a "typo."
This morning, Atari announced that it had struck a deal with Call of Duty: Finest Hour developer Spark Unlimited to develop a next-generation console game. In a case of not-so-coincidental timing, Activision announced that it is also planning a new Call of Duty console game, due "this fall." Previously, the only Call of Duty console game was Finest Hour for the Xbox, GameCube, and PlayStation 2.
But while Activision was forthcoming about the developers behind the new game--Spider-Man 2 shop Treyarch and internal studio Gray Matter, maker of the United Offensive PC expansion pack--it was less forthcoming about which platform it would be released for. The release said only that "Activision will be enlisting gamers in an all-new tour of duty this fall with its latest Call of Duty game for the consoles." (Emphasis added.)
