So we are still waiting on something official to be announced by Infinity Ward or Activision but as we sit now this is what we know or have seen being rumoured.[Activision have broken their silence and confirmed point 1 below, however no reason has been announced as yet]
- Jason West and Vince Zampella have both been fired.
- Infinity Ward is currently in lock down
- Infinity Ward hasn’t been paid a cent for royalties.
- Jason and Vince were talking to other publishers for after their contracts ended in October
- It wasn’t EA they were talking to
It’s point 4 that really gets me thinking, obviously Activision would be hugely upset if their star studio decided to up shop and move over to Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft or Sonyâ€¦
And that would also explain the litigation statement we saw yesterday as I am pretty sure it would be against their contract to talk to other publishers while still under contact with Activision.
