Activision Sacks Infinity Ward Bosses?

From NowGamer.com

According to reports Jason West and Vince Zampella, key figures at Infinity Ward, have been fired by owner and publisher Activision for ‘insubordination’

G4 has been covering the story, reporting on the arrival of bouncer-type security at Infinity Ward’s offices, as well as the apparent disappearance of West and Zampella after meeting with Activision. West’s Linkedin profile was since changed to read “President/Game Director/CCO/CTO Infinity Ward, January 2001 – March 2010.”

Robert Bowling has tweeted to say that he doesn’t know what’s happening: “I should also say, while I appreciate all the calls, tweets, messages and hearing my ringtone a lot. They’re in vain – as I have no info.”

“The matter is expected to involve the departure of key personnel”

Activision later made a Securities and Exchange Commission filing citing an HR investigation into “breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at Infinity Ward.””This matter is expected to involve the departure of key personnel and litigation,” read the filing. “At present, the Company does not expect this matter to have a material impact on the Company.”

We’re sure the loss of ‘key personnel’ will have an impact on the studio, but whether that will lead to a business impact remains to be seen. There’s no official word for now but we’ll let you know as soon as there is.
