Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk developer Neversoft has revealed that it is working on the Call of Duty franchise.

The team is hiring senior level designers, specialising in both single-player and multiplayer for its involvement in Activision's first-person shooter franchise.

Call of Duty games have been developed by Treyarch and Infinity Ward in recent years, with online content handled by a different studio.

It is unknown whether or not Neversoft will be creating its own title, handling development for a different platform or providing support for existing teams.

A statement on the studio's website suggests it is a support role: "We have moulded our team into a crack squad of eager developers ready to push the First Person Action genre in support of Activision's Call of Duty franchise."

Current Call of Duty games in development include Black Ops 2 and PlayStation Vita title Black Ops: Declassified, which was announced at the E3 Gaming Expo.

A Wii U port of Black Ops 2 is also rumoured, with a reported November release.

Announced last month, Black Ops 2 is set during a 21st century Cold War and will release on November 13 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

The game's campaign will feature usable drones and horses, as well as a robot enemy force to fight in a devastated Los Angeles.
