A group of 38 plaintiffs who call themselves the "Infinity Ward Employee Group" filed suit this morning in Los Angeles Superior Court against Activision, alleging breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of California labor code and more, seeking "a large amount of unpaid royalties," reports G4tv.com. According to the report the suit says that while $28 million in royalties on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been paid, more than $54 million is still due, and the plaintiffs are seeking "to recover between $75 million and $125 million, if not more, in compensatory damages." Also, the suit states that "Activision withheld the property of the IWEG in an attempt to keep the employees hostage so that Activision could reap the benefit of the completion of Modern Warfare 3." They have further details, including a full list of the 38 plaintiffs (not all of whom have left Infinity Ward), and an outline of how they calculated how much money they are seeking, which follows.
