Toys For Bob Are Now Working On Call Of Duty: Warzone

Toys for Adler.


It’s been announced that Toys For Bob, the team behind the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the more recent Crash 4: It’s About Time, have been seemingly turned by Activision into yet another support team for Call of Duty: Warzone. The news was broken on Twitter last night.


Another Activision Blizzard Studio Has Been Reorganised?

Yes, as earlier this year, Vicarious Visions were pulled to work on the Diablo 2 remake for Blizzard. Originally, Vicarious Visions were the ones responsible for the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.

Call of Duty at the moment is no stranger to having multiple studios working on the franchise, as right now, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Sledgehammer, Raven, Beenox, High Moon and now Toys For Bob all work on CoD. While the first have been Call of Duty developers for the longest time, Raven, Beenox and High Moon are a bit more recent. Toys For Bob is just the latest in a long line.


How Have The Toys For Bob Staff Reacted?

Seemingly not well. Character designer and illustrator Nicholas Kole left the studio in January, and while he was still polite in addressing the developers still at Toys For Bob, stating that he wished them “the best with what’s ahead”, he noted that there’s no one left there that he had any interaction with previously: “Although everyone I interfaced with and worked along was let go, I’m very glad it’s not a totally shuttering.”

Another game designed, Blake Maloof, also tweeted out that they’d left Toys For Bob specifically due to this decision. In reply to another Twitter user, Blake mentions that they made their own decision to leave: “I left on my own terms. I had been needing a change anyways, so this just pushed my decision.”
