Neversoft has had a big effect on games from the Tony Hawk skateboard games to the juggernaut that is Guitar Hero, as well as one of my personal favourites titles in Gun. So today is a rather glum day in the games industry as Neversoft officially closes its doors as Activision merges the team with Infinity Ward, with the focus being Call of Duty. It makes financial sense for Activision as the CoD franchise is its biggest while both Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero faded from relevance.
The Neversoft team didn’t go out quietly though but instead decided to burn the eye logo.

Neversoft’s founder, Joel Jewett, also gifted every team member with a blade engraved with the Neversoft logo engraved on it.
