Activision’s “Project Icebreaker” Could Hurt its Reputation Among Devs
More than two years after Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella first sued Activision, their case is finally set to head to trial on May 29. But before the case can be heard, documents have been released which shed light on some unsavory moves Activision made prior to firing West and Zampella in March 2010.
Prior to the start of the case, there have been some developments of note. Electronic Arts, the publisher of the game being produced by West and Zampella’s new studio, Respawn Entertainment, was added in late 2010 as a defendant in Activision’s counter-suit; Activision alleged EA conspired with the former IW heads to derail the Call of Duty franchise, among other things. Bloomberg reported yesterday the two publishers have reached a settlement, details of which were not made available.
