Something's happening at Infinity Ward right now.

"Everyone is on edge," said my source.

Infinity Ward studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West reportedly met with Activision this morning and have not been seen by Infinity Ward staff members since. My source did not delve into specifics, but described the relationship between Infinity Ward and Activision lately as "tense."

The mood around the Infinity Ward offices is currently described as "freaked out" and "confused."

"We just wanna make our games," said my source.

I've contacted Activision for comment on the ongoing situation at Infinity Ward. Stay tuned.

meh, BC2 can get its ohs and ahs but IW and Act are too busy rolling in piles of money to care.

Not a Call of Duty fan but boy..Activision is a really easy company to hate. I wonder what those guys did to get canned. Maybe they got tired of making Call of Duty games and Activision said, "**** you , more CoD" and off they went.

I love how people instantly assume Activision is evil... perhaps these guys are total doucgebags? You don't know.

Certainly but I hate Activision and their mediocre products anyways. I'm not taking any sides myself as I'm not a fan of either company but Activision's lineup is mostly garbage in my opinion.

You are right that maybe those IW fellas are the bad guys. Maybe those IW guys have a big head and demanded a ton of stuff or just decided to do what they wanted against Activision.


Yesterday was an interesting day with this crazy stuff, Sony's PSN nightmare..etc.

Hmm. Maybe this will cause the PC version of MW2 to drop from $60 to something more reasonable.

For MW2, $25 is reasonable for me. ;)

It's funny that all these MW2 console fans say Vince and Jason made IW and COD, thus trying to say it was all Activision's fault. I'm sorry to tell everyone that Grant Collier made IW and COD. Not to mention the hatred between IW and Treyarch, where IW held back code while Treyarch developed COD:WW

I have a feeling they where let go because they thought their **** did not stink, thus Activision showing them who the boss is.

Then there is the wild rumor that IW has not received any royalties yet from sales of MW2. However if true, royalties are not paid out after a game ships, it's usalay the next quarter or two before royalties are paid.

Who knows, other then Jason lying to my face at the MW2 Xbox event I can see why Activsion escorted him out of the building....
