    Looks like Activision might have given up and paid off a large sum of money to Jason West and Vince Zampella, the Infinity Ward pair were fired in March 2010 (doesn't feel like 2 years ago does it?). The terms are being kept strictly confidential, but Los Angeles Times reporter Ben Fritz reported that "Jason West is in court and smiling."

    The judge for this case has said that the case needs to be closed by June 2nd and this appears to be Activision's response to easily close this case and perhaps prevent any more bad press. Who knows, hopefully the full terms will be released soon.

    Ah, the tried and true "Throw money at the problem to make it go away" approach. I mean, Activision, you could have not attempted to screw over these guys in the first place, but hey, your choice.
