Activision Getting Sued For $625 million+ Dollars

article-image

It’s already hard enough for activision that the founders of Infinity Ward Vince Zampella and Jason West left the company and started their own and started a new studio called Respawn Entertainment. After that was done, employee after employee is leaving Infinity Ward, most to join Respawn Entertainment.. But now, it looks like Activision is getting sued for over $500 million dollars in court!

TheĀ  “Infinity Ward Employee Group” is 38 plaintiffs that has filed a lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court, the group consists of former and even current employees of Infinity Ward. The group wants $75 million USD to $125 million in compensatory damages and $75 to $500 million in punitive damages. They claimed that Activision owed them $28 million in bonuses, and are owed another $54 million.

Activision says that they have paid their bonuses correctly and they said they “look forward to gettingĀ  judicial confirmation that our position is right.”

    Sounds like Infinity Ward won’t be making a new COD anytime soon.

    Why in the world would you kill the goose that lays golden eggs. Even though I’m tired of Modern Warfare, I hope the employees formerly known as Infinity Ward win. It’s time for big publishers to start paying their developers right.

    Can I get a witness?

      I am in full agreement. We don’t see how underappreciated developers are, within huge corporate brands such as Activision and EA. Its a shame really, they dont understand that happy developers could make better games and earn the company more $$$.
