More Infinity Ward Departures?

A tweet by George Broussard suggests another four employees have parted ways with Infinity Ward in the continuing exodus from the Call of Duty developer since last month's dismissal of studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West. George tweets: "4 more people leave Infinity Ward today. Near 50% of dev staff. ETA till IW closure? Activision earnings report in a week" (thanks Edge Online). George is not the only one expressing the public opinion that Infinity Ward's future is in doubt, as Gamasutra quotes Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey opining: "We expect Infinity Ward studio will be essentially closed after their next map pack release, with development work on Modern Warfare 3 spread between two studios not historically tied to the franchise." Thanks Joker961.

I agree -- if this is not newsworthy, it's my fault for posting it, not George's for saying it.

and hereby I confirm that this is certainly newsworthy because I really like to be kept informed about all the IW departures and I don't have the time to look it up by myself.

News like this is essentially the reason why I still read Blue's News regularly ever since it was created. Actually there is no other website (on any other subject) which I have been reading as long as BN because for some strange reason, this site is the only one which is posting the "interesting" gaming news and not bloated. I thank Blue for this
