Deviation Games is a studio founded by ex-Treyarch developers Jason Blundell and Dave Anthony, who worked on various Call of Duty projects prior. The studio announced Blundell's departure on Twitter, and details as to the reason why are scant at the time of writing.

Anthony will continue to lead the studio in his capacity as CEO, and Deviation Games also announced that Louis Castle would be joining the studio as Senior Vice President of Development. Castle co-founded Westwood studios, perhaps best known for their iconic strategy game franchise, Command & Conquer.

Sony Interactive Entertainment contracted Deviation Games to work on a secretive AAA project last year, with PlayStation head-honcho Hermen Hulst stopping by for an update as recently as last month, so the whole thing comes as quite a surprise.
