Activision Reaches Settlement With EA Over Call Of Duty

by Jim Reilly on May 16, 2012 at 12:45 PM

Activision and Electronic Arts have reached a settlement in the on-going Call of Duty lawsuit that began two years ago.

Details about the settlement today were not disclosed at this time. Activision's request to delay the trial date after hiring a new lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, was also denied. The original court date of May 29 will continue. The case now includes former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella and the Infinity Ward Employee Group.

EA was accused of aiding West and Zampella's departure from Activision. EA will now be removed from the lawsuit.

Activision recently paid out $42 million to the Infinity Ward Employee Group earlier this week.
