Infinity Ward Re-Hires Todd Alderman as Multiplayer Director
I agree it is a little to early to make a move on the Call of Duty title that would be made by Infinity Ward in the future because we are still to actually start talking about the 2015 title by Treyarch.
However, the team that made Ghosts is getting some changes as we speak, and interesting ones at that! For instance, the executive producer is not with the development team any more and an old pal, Todd Alderman has been brought back on team.
He is a former lead designer who left the studio around five years ago amid tons of lawsuits, allegations and more. You might remember the case filed against Activison by some of the employees who sought after unpaid bonuses to the tunes of millions of dollars in 2010 – Alderman was one of them.
Naturally, he had left the studio and when Vince Zampella, after getting fired, opened up Respawn Entertainment, Alderman joined forces with him. His latest work place was Riot Games, the makers of League of Legends.
In the past he has worked as a lead designer for MOHAA and multiple Call of Duty titles.
Alderman says that he is “excited to be back,” and he continued:
The chance to come back to Infinity Ward and Call of Duty is something I didn’t think would ever happen. It’s been five years since I’ve been here and a lot has changed. There are a lot of new faces and motivated people who want to make something great. It’s a really cool game concept that I want to be a part of. I can’t wait to see what we do with a three-year dev cycle.
Well, that is an interesting development seeing how only five years ago the studio and this guy were at loggerheads – bygones?
