Inside the Lawsuit-Filled Breakup: Activision & Call of Duty Designers Vincent Zampella & Jason West

Vanity Fair: "The video-game industry is currently waiting with bated breath for the release of Titanfall, the new sci-fi shoot-’em-up project from developers Vincent Zampella and Jason West. The game, which will be the talk of this week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, is expected to be big—Zampella and West are best known for their multi-billion dollar game series, Call of Duty. But the real-life battle between the pair and their former employers, Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard, is turning out to be nearly as vicious as the on-screen fights Zampella and West are so good at rendering realistic." (Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Industry, Jason West, Vincent Zampella)

Interesting...but it seems they only went from bad to worse joining EA.

Old IW/Respawn had 5 design leads, with West being on top as the project lead. After West left last summer, Todd Alderman and Zied Rieke also left the company too around the same time.

But if you read their forums. It seems like they all left on good terms, none of them left for other studios, but none of them sound like they will ever return.
