Golgotron says, "Ever since the Infinity Ward fiasco where two studio heads, Vince Zampella and Jaxon West, were fired by Activision people have been talking. Most of that talk has revolved around what the two of them would be doing next and about the suing and counter-suing between the duo and Activision. That conversation has changed over the past week and some of the speculation has been answered. Word has spread that several employees of Infinity Ward are resigning from there current positions. On top of that, West and Zampella announced the formation of their new company, Respawn Entertainment."
Quick Update: Two more people have announced their departure from Infinity Ward today. They have both been added to the list. Messerly is actually somebody who have been with IW since day 1. I should also note that Grisby was the inspiration and voice actor for the CoD 4 character, Staff Sergeant Griggs. This brings the total body count to 13 as of today. I think it is fair to see we will see more over the few months.
