Treyarch has no involvement with Black Ops Declassified

Treyarch and Infinity Ward have not had any say on the development of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, which is coming to the PS Vita this year.

Speaking to CVG earlier, John Rafacz, a communications manager at Treyarch, said that the developer had "not been involved with the Vita version," not even in a consultancy role.

Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified is currently being developed by the team at Nihilistic Software - the team behind Resistance: Burning Skies.

"Activision is the publisher, but we also have a partnership with Sony to bundle Declassified with the PlayStation Vita," said an Activision spokesperson.

Sony did show off some gameplay back at this years gamescom, although it was met with a luke warm reception and didn't fare much better in the various previews which appeared soon after.

Let's hope the game is up to scratch once its release date finally gets here.

i dont see the problem with it, a five year old could be making this and it would still sell, its generic and copy and paste just like the rest of call of duty, not hard to get right but bloody difficult to get wrong, if nihilistic get it wrong then maybe they should just quit making games now!

It strikes me as odd that they've had no input at all, especially as it's supposed to branch black ops 1 and 2's story. You would think it would be important to at least make sure they got this right. It's also odd they didn't want to at least implement something new to multiplayer, but instead it seems like they are making it a mash up of black ops 1 and mw3 features and modes.

I heard Resistance:Burning Skies was a pretty good game, so i have faith in Nihilistic Software to turn out a good COD game. I would of thought Treyarch and Infinity Ward would of had at least some input on the game, as if it did bomb, then it's the COD name on the line.

Burning Skies was by no means a poor game but it wasn't particularly good either. It didn't look great, probably only slightly improved graphics over psp/ps2 levels, textures were horrible. The gameplay was extremely linear, almost always just going down a single corridor all the time, and the single player was very short. From the video it looks like BO declassified could well be more of the same, though we're used to CoD game being very linear anyway. The graphics is what shocks me most, especially looking at what Guerilla have done with Killzone Mercenary.

If This sells a stupid amount of copys i think its safe to say that anyone will buy into a game if it simply has the cal lof duty labelling

I think that's pretty much a given.

I've had enough of Call of Duty games at the moment, and Black ops Declassified looks quite awful - 4v4 multiplayer and incredibly average graphics are definitely going to put a lot of people off. I just hope Killzone Mercenary is as good as it looks!!

It doesn't matter whether the game sells or not. I hate call of duty and what it has become now, but I don't see the point in deliberately giving it a bad name, which is what's happening here. I mean, the massive publisher who carries it's name proudly isn't even phased by it being developed by these guys with the dodgy name... Why couldn't this be done by Bend? Now those guys no how to make a great portable experience...
