Infinity Ward Suffers Key Losses After Recent Debacle

Ex-Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West have founded their own studio and announced a deal with EA, Activision sees this move as proof of "improper activities," and amidst all this, the IW studio has lost many key members.

As noted by this Golgotron article, the list of departed employees has grown long and worse, it features some very important individuals. Lead Designers Steve Fukada, Zied Reike and Mackey McCandlish followed Zampella and West out the door, followed by a string of programmers, artists, engineers and animators. Now, Activision still claims that Infinity Ward has a "deep bench of talent" but the losses are clear. But although you might think some of those ex-IW members might jump on board with their former bosses at Respawn Entertainment, Zampella won't make any such confirmations now. And despite all this, Activision's stock continues to rise so investors apparently aren't too worried about this escaping talent. On the other hand, analysts have said it could indeed affect the quality of future Call of Duty installments.

This whole mess has really shaken things up, hasn't it? Who knows where the pieces will fall? Well, to be honest, we're more interested in seeing what Respawn produces than another CoD from IW at this point.
