The case between Activision and Infinity Ward's former bosses continues to rumble on, and it's getting pretty messy.
Today the publisher has claimed that the alleged disruptive behaviour by Jason West and Vince Zampella delayed the pre-production of Modern Warfare 3.
It's a costly delay, no doubt - Modern Warfare is this console generation's most lucrative games franchise. In fact, Activision said the whole sorry situation has cost it dearly, with extra resource assigned to MW3's development, plus a stack of legal fees, not to mention the overall controversy.
Plus, Activision's countersuit today - reprinted by IGN - claims that the two were actively looking to form their own studio, and poach colleagues.
