Which just means there’s actually going to be a trial instead of those wimpy settlements big industry scuffles are usually resolved with. You may remember Jason West and Vince Zampella for heading up Infinity Ward during the development of the incredible Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare and the considerably less incredible sequel, after the release of which Activision promptly fired them both and watched half of Infinity Ward leave with them to form a new studio.
The new studio signed a deal with Activision rival EA, all sorts of allegations flew left and right and now here we are seeing it all come to a head.
Apparently both trials, the one filed by West and Zampella and Activision’s counter-suit have been allowed to go ahead, so it will all get settled soon one way or the other. Unless the judge just awards the same amount of damages to each plaintiff and calls it a day.
