When Black Ops II: Declassified was announced for PS Vita, many simply concluded the game was being developed by a branch in Treyarch, but the firm has said that’s not the case. In fact, Treyarch has no idea who’s behind the handheld version of the game.
“I don’t know,” replied Treyarch’s Director of Communications John Rafacz when asked by VideoGamer whether his studio or Neversoft, the latest addition to the Call of Duty ‘family’, were behind the Vita version of Black Ops.
“With regards to the Vita, all I can tell you is that it’s quite literally declassified.”
Rafacz meant ‘classified’, we believe.
In any case, he has no clue, but promises to reveal who’s behind it once the news is made known to them.
“When I know, I’ll tell you,” he said.
As for Black Ops II on Wii U, Rafacz didn’t confirm the game, but he said if there’s tech available on consoles that enhances the Call of Duty experience, then it’s worth considering.
“When you talk about any technology that can enhance the Call of Duty experience, that’s a technology that is worth considering. There’s that core Call of Duty experience and that is what fans expects, so anything that helps advance that is worth considering.”
Black Ops II sees a worldwide release November 13th on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
