Diablo III had an impressive third place showing, despite being on only one platform.

Former Modern Warfare devs wanted to give Call of Duty series a 'rest'

Former Modern Warfare devs wanted to give Call of Duty series a 'rest'

Ultimately, what caused the huge rift between Infinity Ward execs Jason West and Vince Zampella and Activision? The two say that the team's desire to work on a game other than Modern Warfare 3 made an already tense relationship even worse.
