The lights are on
A settlement has been reached between Activision and former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella.
An attorney for the case confirmed to Game Informer a settlement between the parties, which includes Activision, Jason West, Vince Zampella, and the Infinity Ward Employee Group, was reached this afternoon, but was unable to provide further details. The terms of the deal are strictly confidential.
"The company does not believe that the incremental one-time charges related to the settlement will result in a material impact on its GAAP or non-GAAP earnings per share outlook for the current quarter or the calendar year, due to stronger-than-expected operating performance in the current quarter," Activision said.
A spokesperson for EA issued the following statement to Game Informer: “Activision’s refusal to pay their talent and attempt to blame EA were absurd. This settlement is a vindication of Vince and Jason, and the right of creative artists to collect the rewards due for their hard work.” Activision reached a settlement with Electronic Arts earlier this month.
Game Informer recently conducted an interview with Jason West and Vince Zampella where the duo talks about their side of the story. You can read about it here.
Well it's about friggin time.
Man, I thought I wouldn't live to see the day...
Now I hope we can hear news on their new game.
I hope this means good news for West and Zampella...
well, when it was reported that Activision had people trying to find things to nail West and Zampella, they pretty much were going to lose the case because they were finding reasons to get rid of them...hope west and zampella got paid...
It's like Activision doesn't have money or anything...
finally, i really want them to get back to game making
*** you u cunts (activision), don't matter if you hire a super jew-lawyer, he wont get you the money you so desperately crave for.
So how long before Activision is involved in another lawsuit? I'm gonna say a week or two.
