Call of Duty developer Treyarch has caused an uproar among fans for a recent job vacancy which listed "using generative AI tools" in its description. With a slew of recent AI controversies causing conflict in the gaming sector, it's clear that the integration of AI tech is an unwelcome development in the community. 

While most fans were disappointed by the news, some saw it as an opportunity to adapt to the times. It's no secret that AI is taking over all aspects of the creative industry and game development is no different. Yet, with a community that prides itself on creativity, it increasingly feels like we're losing that precious human touch.
