Deviation Games was founded by Jason Blundell, former Treyarch leader and Call of Duty director, and a former vice president, Dave Anthony. In 2021, announced that Deviation had partnered with Sony to create a game for PlayStation. While we still don’t know what the new IP is, it appears that Blundell hasn’t been involved anymore, since he’s gone out of the studio.

In an address on twitter that stated (thanks, Eurogamer), Deviation Games confirmed Jason Blundell has left the studio, and they “recommended the contributions Jason had made, and we wish him all in his future work”. Since these endeavors are on, Blundell hasn’t spoken a word about what he’s going to do next, whether it’s joining a new studio or taking some time off. No reason not to leave.

In the statement, I continue to say that CEO Dave Anthony will continue in charge of the game and has also been on board as Game Director. The studio also brought in big names to make up Blundell’s departure, most notably Louis Castle, who has joined the development executive force as a senior vice president. Even younger readers may not know who it is, but Castle was the co-founder of Westwood Studios and the creator of the iconic Command & Conquer series. He has also won two Lifetime Achievement awards for his work in the industry.
Join him are two former God of War devs, Jonathan Hawkins and Dean Rymer, while Tony Flame is a spokesman for the renowned “All of Duty”.
“With such a great array of talent Deviation is uniquely equipped to continue to lead the ever-evolving games industry into the future,” continued the statement.
While we’re still waiting for news of what this new IP is, Activision announced that Call of Duty Warzone Mobile will be unveiled at the upcoming Call of Duty Next event. The source code on the official site of the game revealed that it will feature 120-player lobbies and authentic Call of Duty games. As for an earlier step, the common progression system was mentionned, but not in detail.
