Activision Reaches Settlement With West, Zampella
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.
