Activision has listed off some of the co-developers working on Call of Duty: Vanguard alongside the main team at Sledgehammer Games. This news is coming to light as the state of California sues Activision Blizzard for a pattern of sexual harassment and discrimination against women.

According to a marketing email currently going out, Treyarch, Beenox, Raven, and High Moon Studios are collaborating with Sledgehammer Games on the new game. This is not at all a surprise given Call of Duty games are jointly developed by Activision’s various in-house studios. This is also the case for Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series, while Rockstar Games is known to bring in multiple development studios to contribute to a single project.
