Treyarch and Infinity Ward Collaborating on Future Call of Dutys

Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward has said that it intends to collaborate on future iterations of the Call of Duty series with Treyarch. Typically, the two studios steer clear of each other’s projects. Indeed, there seemed to be a healthy rivalry. But now it seems we can expect increased collaboration.
"When we do something really great it would be good for theirs, and when they do something really great it would be good for ours, so I think you are going to see a lot more of that. We're taking in feedback as a franchise as a whole, not just our individual iterations any more," said Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling.
He’s keen to stress that they remain two separate teams, however. "I think there will always be a lot of communication back and forth. At the end of the day we are two different developers and we have different opinions about the games we make and the games they make."
So we've already had Gun Game and One in the Chamber in Modern Warfare 3. What next? Zombies in MW4? Spec Ops in Black Ops 2? Ezio in SoulCalibur? Wait. What?
