Infinity Ward lead developers axed unexpectedly

RogueyWon (735973) writes "Kotaku is reporting that Infinity Ward, developer of Modern Warfare 2, has been at the centre of strange events, and that Jason West and Vince Zampella, two lead developers, have been fired by parent company Activision for "breaches of contract and insubordination". Speculation is rife as to the reasons behind this; following Modern Warfare 2's spectacular sales figures, it seems unlikely that the studio's performance could be to blame."

Working for the top has its benefits for some. You can go to a lower end company and be the top man on staff. Or you can use it to get the girls. Tell them you worked for 2 years at EA Games. You have no idea of the things they made you do, no man should have to live through those horrors. Girls eat it up like cheese burgers. And the benefits!?! After you have worked for Apple (Who uses children for their factories http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/02/28/apple-child-labor-confess_n_479871.html [huffingtonpost.com] Or EA Games and Activision who rapes your very soul. You can qualify for disability and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. The retirement plan is wonderful allowing you to live comfortably in a mental institution, moms basement, or underpass / bridge of your choosing.
