On Infinity Ward Royalties

Kotaku has a speculative article on why we have not heard about an exodus from Infinity Ward following the firing of Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West and the subsequent lawsuit over royalties, saying "sources" tell them royalties are being withheld from the developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. They explain that salaries at Infinity Ward are "regular," if not "low," but that bonuses are "ridiculous" to compensate. They've been told that Activision is delaying paying royalties to employees to keep them at the company, and that "morale at Infinity Ward is reportedly extremely low." Thanks nin.

If it wasn't for the lack of dedicated servers, I'm not sure I'd really care about any of this. At this point I'm not sure whose side to take, considering the guys who got fired were anti-dedicated servers.

Oh, me, I'm pretty sure of which side to take: neither.

Fuck Kotick for his methods and for the destruction he's causing at Acti, and fuck West and Zampella for opening a very dangerous door that has hurt (and will hurt even more) PC gaming: no LAN, no dedis, no modding, no mapping, almost no game.

I'd hope they never get those royalties if it wasn't because that'd mean that Kotick would get to keep them.
