Activision getting sued by ex infinity ward staff

The tussle between Activision and members of the Infinity Ward studio has just gotten more heated. The "Infinity Ward Employee Group" as they have called themselves is claiming that Activision owes them between $75 million and $125 million.

The group includes various employees who quit Infinity Ward amidst the firing of Vince Zampella and Jason West - former bosses at IW. The group's attorney Bruce Isaac says that, "Activision has withheld most of the money to force many of my people to stay, some against their will, so that they would finish the delivery of Modern Warfare 3. That is not what they wanted to do. My clients are entitled to their money. Activision has no right to withhold their money," according to the lawsuit discovered by G4TV.

To make matters worse, the plaintiffs are also looking to add an additional $75 to $500 million in punitive damages which include unpaid bonuses pertaining to 2009-2010 sales from Modern Warfare 2, bonuses allegedly owed to them for the past quarter of 2010, lost value from stocks and interest rates among others.

Earlier today, Activision issued the following response:

"Activision believes the action is without merit. Activision retains the discretion to determine the amount and the schedule of bonus payments for MW2 and has acted consistent with its rights and the law at all times. We look forward to getting judicial confirmation that our position is right."
