Infinity Ward Employees Sue Activision

Hoo boy, things are getting very serious with the media debacle that is Infinity Ward and Activision. A group of around thiry-eight Infinity Ward employees have filed a lawsuit against Activision claiming the publisher has not paid the full amount of bonuses and royalities owed to the developer since the release of Modern Warfare 2; going so far as to say that Activision is intentionally holding the developer's payment hostage in order to keep employees working at IW to develop (and subsequently reap the rewards of) Modern Warfare 3.

According to G4TV, the employees taking part in the suit include "a significant portion of the members of the creative team" for Modern Warfare 2.  Information filed within the suit mentions that Activision has paid Infinity Ward around $28 million for the game, but is charged for witholding an additional $54 million for 2009's profits, not including amounts yet to be payed for the games success in 2010. In addition to the money owed, the IW employees are seeking anywhere from $75 million to $500 million in punitive damages. The suit also mentions Activision's breach of contract by failing to pay terminated or departing employees their due within seventy-two hours of their end of employment.

Rumor: Infinity Ward Not Working on Modern Warfare 3

According to a VG247 source, Infinity Ward is not working on another Modern Warfare. Instead they're working on something "completely new." This shouldn't come as a huge surprise, however. In October, the voice of Infinity Ward, Robert Bowling, said, "Right now, we don't have a clue what our next game is going to be, and we won't know what it will be until we finish with Modern Warfare 2, which won't be for a while."

We also know that Modern Warfare 2 is getting add-on content, which will be timed exclusives for the Xbox 360.

Obviously we cannot confirm the validity of VG247's sources, nor will Activision or Infinity Ward comment on such speculation. In the meantime, take this as it is, a rumor.
