Binge Gamer has further information on the situation at Infinity Ward, where it's been reported studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West have been let go by Activision. The report, said to be based on anonymous sources within Activision, says that Infinity Ward has received zero royalties from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (they cannot actually confirm a royalty deal was in place, but note that *every* source they spoke with at Activision mentioned this fact), and they also say that the "breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at Infinity Ward" Activision has claimed may have been Zampella and West contacting rival publishers about a deal. It is understood that Activision actually owns Infinity Ward, and they attempt to clarify how Infinity Ward could broker a separate deal, granting their explanation "makes zero sense," but it seems the contractual aspects of the relationship between Infinity Ward and Activision and the ownership of the Call of Duty IP are, well, complicated.
