David Vonderhaar, a lead developer at Treyarch, the face of Blackout and Call of Dury e-Sports, and the ‘creator’ of the multiplayer modes in Call of Duty: World at War and Black Ops games, has been asked to quit Call of Duty, which led to deleting his tweets and his account.
David Vonderhaar has been in Treyarch for 14 years and was recently asked to disconnect his day-to-day with the CoD world. The tweets have been deleted, but here is what he wrote before deleting his account.
I was asked by someone I respect to disconnect my day to day with the Call of Duty world I was apart of. I respect that. It makes sense. Before I go … Good luck to all the Call of Duty World League Esports heros.
Let’s be clear about something. @fwiz @hastr0 @OpTicH3CZ and many more. None of this exists with those pioneers beating up my inbox. Whatever story you heard is probably true but not the truth. Good shit, guys. Be proud right now. It’s a straight-up honor to you know all.
We have come a long way. I can’t help myself in this exact second. I just don’t care what it cost anymore. We did a thing together. It sucked. It was awesome. Pat yourself on the back. Thank you. So much fun to be had.
