'Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2' (ALL) Developer In Disarray, Co-Founder Fired?

by Rainier on March 2, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Now here's a bizarre story. G4's Patrick Klepek reported last night that relations between Activision and Infinity Ward have been "tense" for several months. Yesterday, the studio heads had a meeting with owner Activision, after which IW's Vince Zampella and Jason West have not been seen at the studio. Once security personnel arrived on the IW premises, employees became "freaked out" and "confused," but no further information was available. Its otherwise chatty community rep Robert Bowling has been awfully quiet, only tweeting he had no information on the matter. Later last night, Jason West's Facebook status changed to "Jason West is drinking. Also, no longer employed," while his LinkedIn profile now shows his career as IW president spanned January 2001 – March 2010.

UPDATE: Found in a March 1st, 2010 SEC filing by Activision, "The Company is concluding an internal human resources inquiry into breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at Infinity Ward."
