Alongside the recent news of Activision trying to spy on and fire Jay West and Vince Zampella six months before Modern Warfare 2 came out, GamesIndustry is reporting that they have also settled with EA over their suit which claims that EA stole West and Zampella away from Activision. They’re probably unrelated.
Activision was initially seeking $400 million in damages over West’s, Zampella’s, and 40 other employees’ departures as a counterclaim to Zampella’s and West’s lawsuits against the company for unpaid bonuses and contract termination.
The settlement on this suit has no bearing on West’s and Zampella’s suit. Meanwhile, EA remains somewhat involved and has promised to support West and Zampella in their case against Activision.
