You should have heard about it by now.

Personally, I think Activision is every thing wrong with gaming. They take talented developers and strangle the life out of them. Infinity Ward made a blockbuster franchise, but then Activision came along and milked it to death, and when IW DIDN'T want to make Modern Warfare 3 next year, two of the head execs (I don't think they were the founders) were fired for breach of contract. Red Octane was also shut down because Activision took their successful franchise and milked it. When that backfired, Red Octane was the one that got screwed.

So now there will most likely be two Call of Duty games per year, one by Treyarch and one by a new studio that Activision opened called Sledgehammer (headed by two guys from Visceral Games; why they went from EA to Activision escapes me). I hate Activision and everything they stand for, to the point where I am no longer going to buy any Activision products, and I stopped playing (and am selling) the Activision products I already own.

i think that is good for the two guys. they will be able to do wat ever they want. im sure they have tons of ideas but activision most likely said nope ur doing cod. so if they open a new studio(they probably will) they will do some good stuff.

Yeah Activision just wants the money for CoD. Especially the Modern Warfare series. They have to take it to the point where they just fire the founders FOR MONEY!!!!! Call of Duty is going to crash and burn because of that. Activision just shot themself in the foot with this move

Now the guys who got fired are suing Activision for royalties they are allegedly owed ($36 million) and for the name "Modern Warfare". They'd make MW its own franchises separate from Call of Duty and Activision wouldn't be able to make any post-Vietnam war games.

im rooting for inifinty ward all the way. although i do not rly like mw2's multiplayer anymore (it was fun b4 christmas) i do not think they deserved to get fired just because activision wants them to start working on the next modern warfare right away. infinity ward should be able to do it a their own pace. but no, activision doesn't care about quality, they care about MONEY!!!! screw activision 4 life

I'm rooting for Infinity Ward. Activision needs to see the repercussions of their actions.

As much as I want Infinity Ward to win their law suit. This could lead to so unwanted repercussions like no more modern warfare reflex editions because the will own the modern warfare name. that could also mean wii get stuck in W.W.2.

o.k enough of me being a pessimist this could lead to better reflex games because Activision will finally give tryarch The time and cash to make not just good shooters but great games. that only if they learn their lesson. I think they will because they'll need the cash.

what ever what r your thoughts

I think you guys are confused IW is not suing the co-founders who were fired for "insubordination" are suing. for all there royalties that that they where supposed to get in like a week. they get royalties form what i understand is any call of duty game they make or there tech is involved with. i do hope those two guys win tho.

When I saw "Infinity Ward", I'm talking about the two guys. But chances are if a publishers picks those guys up, other IW members will follow.

Mk, and agreed but only if they don't have a no competitor clause. im sure Activation has some of the higher ups locked in.

Even if the rest of Infinity Ward doesn't follow, at least there's a chance that the name "Modern Warfare" will be out of Activision's hands. More and more people are associating with Modern Warfare, not Call of Duty. Think about Modern Warfare 2. Nobody calls it Call of Duty 6 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Just "Modern Warfare 2". Even the boxart was originally not going to have the Call of Duty name on it.

So as it stands, I think the name "Modern Warfare" is more valuable than the name "Call of Duty".
