Tucked away in an inconspicuous business park in a sleepy section of Santa Monica are the offices of one of the biggest developers in video games, Treyarch. The studio, founded in 1996, has been producing best-selling games for nearly two decades, and after its acquisition by Activision in 2001 it was given control of one of gaming's crown jewels: Call of Duty.
