On MW2 Bonuses

Gamasutra reports that Activision has awarded performance bonuses intended for former Infinity Ward executives Jason West and Vince Zampella to the employees who have remained with Infinity Ward "who did not allegedly attempt to steal company secrets." They quote community rep and former game journalist Dan Amrich in a Discussion about Activision Facebook Page referring to "Vince and Jason's surreptitious attempts to photocopy and scan sensitive documents." Not that they are looking to stem the exodus of IW employees with cash, but Dan adds: "more people will probably go too, looking for new situations. Maybe they will join Respawn, maybe not. I'm confused, because by leaving, they are giving up their bonus -- and the more people that leave, the bigger the bonus gets for the people who stay."

It's quite normal to incorporate into contracts bonuses that are contingent on the recipient still being an employee at some specified date. That can be years down the line, if that's what the contract says.

Of course it seems bloody cheeky when the bonus is being tied to a specific, individually identifiable and wholly completed piece of work. But well they agreed to it.
