*Never hits the infinity wards*
*Never was one for Wards*

maybe they should have tried adding some words and then just made it into an acronym?

Got it. Infinity Soft.
I swear there is awesome possibilities for those two names, although we may not hear it now Square soft and Enix didn't sound so great put together afterwards and now... well name wise it's alright now.

Sadly the new super studio decided to just drop Neversoft's name entirely and just run with Infinity Ward.
I finally have a name for my line of male enhancement products!

Woot, move over Viagra and Cialis, never soft is going to rise past them and up to the top.

Pun intended.

I'm not sure I would openly have this product, maybe if it comes with a free complimentary greasy brown bag to put it in.

What's the reason behind the merger?!
This merger is the final chapter in a story that has been playing out since 2009. In 2009 the CEO's of Infinity Ward were fired for breaching their contracts with Activision. Due to the nature of the dismissal and how shrouded in mystery it was scores of employee's that disagreed with the decision also left. Now this wouldn't have been an issue had it only been 10 - 20 people but the mass-exodus was near 70 and for a studio of only 120, Infinity Ward were left in serious trouble.

This is where Activision come in. Activision contracted the help of one of their subsidiary studios (Sledgehammer) to assist Infinity Ward in completing Modern Warfare 3. This helped boost the numbers at Infinity Ward for a short time, but once the contract was up Sledgehammer left to pursue the game they were working on before hand. So Actvision then contracted the assistance of Neversoft to help make Call of Duty: Ghosts. Unfortunately for Neversoft when the obligation was completed they had nothing to go back to. I believe it was with this in mind that Actvision decided to merge the two studios and solve the staffing problem at Infinity Ward once and for all.

Farewell to the crawling eyeball whose fate is always to be skewered.

Hope they do bring us something besides Call of Duty now that they've become part of Infinity Ward.
