Default And It Begins!!! Infinity Ward Coup Under Way???

Not sure if that's BS but if true looks like something bad's going down. Maybe Activision was pissed because IW was like look we can't send the updates our DEV PS3's are hosed!!!

More like, "And it continues: The Apocalyps3 affects Infinity Ward"

The plot thickens...

Update: And now things are stranger. Kotaku commenter VasectomyOmega dropped the following into the discussion below.



That's supposedly from Modern Warfare 2 game director and Infinity Ward president Jason West's Facebook page. We're trying to verify.

West's LinkedIn profile indicates he is no longer working at Infinity Ward as of March 2010.

To be honest EA was never that bad. Activision impresses me though.

I'll take a wild guess and say that this had to do with MW3 and the evil empire not being able to staff up Sledgehammer Games or w/e their new COD studio was called.

The game industry really does seem to be going to shit.

Sounds pretty bad over there. 1up updated the story.

It appears that studio head Jason West has been let go from Infinity Ward. West's LinkedIn account now lists his position as "past," and shows that the position ended in March 2010. In addition, one of our own sources inside Infinity Ward has said that Activision is "flexing their muscles" against the studio, which is attempting to "push back against change." More as we hear it.
I can only presume that it's probably because Infinity Ward didn't want to pull a Neversoft and get converted solely into a Modern Warfare factory and Activision is removing opposition within the studio to ensure that it does.
