Analyst Predicts Infinity Ward Closure

Janco Partners, a Denver-based broker dealer distinguished for its research on companies within the Media & Electronic Software sector, has precicted that Activision is likely to close down Infinity Ward after the release of the next map pack due for Modern Warfare 2.

Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey, states:

“Continued defections from their Infinity Ward studio have created meaningful uncertainty around the future of their Call of Duty: Modern Warfare franchise,” he said in an investor note.

“We expect Infinity Ward studio will be essentially closed after their next map pack release, with development work on Modern Warfare 3 spread between two studios not historically tied to the franchise.”

Whilst this is only a prediction not set in stone, following the ‘Infinity Ward Employee Group’ law suit and staff heading out of the door to work for Respawn Entertainment - it could be in Activisions best interest to do so.

That would be a very sad day indeed!
