Activision Discovered Infinity Ward-to-EA Plan?

The plot thickens – the latest rumour reported by G4TV is that Activision stumbled upon a plan by Infinity Ward to defect to EA.

As the legal battle between the two sides rumble on, Activision has requested internal documents that supposedly proves ex-Infinity Ward bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West wanted to take the studio to EA.

Activision is currently trying to secure “documents regarding any potential ‘spin out’ of IW” and “documents regarding West and Zampella’s communications with Activision’s competitors, including but not limited to Electronic Arts.”

This would explain why Activision moved so fast and also why they had security with them at Infinity Ward, as they attempted to secure the documents.

This is another big development in this major story. What will happen next?

    It’ll be interesting to see the conclusion of this whole debacle.

    However I believe it’s a tough win for Zampella and West.

    I wonder… if EA acquire IW devs, will that help the new medal of honor title that DICE is working on.
