Kotaku has more on the drama surrounding the departure of Vince Zampella and Jason West from Infinity Ward and Activision, saying Activision is planning on adding Electronic Arts to their lawsuit against West and Zampella. They quote a legal filing from Activision claiming EA attempted to foment insurrection in one of the Call of Duty developers: "Activision is informed and believes that the negotiations between Electronic Arts and West and Zampella were structured with the design and the expectation that West and Zampella would "spin out" from Activision and would take significant numbers of key Infinity Ward employees with them to set up their own independent company so that Electronic Arts could make another run at competing with Activision. Electronic Arts would finance the illicitly-created start-up in exchange for an ownership interest or exclusive distribution rights to the content created by their new company, which would produce video games for Electronic Arts instead of Activision." They follow this up with a comment from the attorney representing West and Zampella: "Activision's filing is a pathetic mash-up of false and reckless assertions, designed only to delay the march to justice for Jason West and Vince Zampella. But what else would you expect from a company that doesn't let the truth get in its way."
