Black Ops II may violate contract with Infinity Ward

Agreement on setting may cause Activision some trouble

Call OF Duty: Black Ops II may violate the terms of a binding agreement between Activision and Infinity Ward signed back in 2008.

The Memorandum of Understanding signed stipulates that Infinity Ward is the only studio permitted to work on a Call Of Duty title with a post-Vietnam setting.

Given that Black Ops II has a near-future setting which definitely breaks the agreement stated in the Memorandum of Understand which is legally binding.

Activision and Treyarch representatives have currently declined to comment on the matter.

Thanks MCV.
