    Exclamation Ousted Infinity Ward founders file suit against Activision

    "Instead of thanking, lauding, or just plain paying Jason and Vince for giving Activision the most successful entertainment product ever offered to the public," attorney Robert Schwartz said, "last month Activision hired lawyers to conduct a pretextual 'investigation' into unstated and unsubstantiated charges of 'insubordination' and 'breach of fiduciary duty,' which then became the grounds for their termination on Monday, March 1st."

    In addition to compensation, the suit seeks to return the contractual rights Zampella and West previously had to the Modern Warfare brand.

    The outcome of this will be very interesting.
