The minds behind Modern Warfare have yet to show the world their new IP, but the reveal inches closer. I’m pretty sure some Marketing Czar from EA said the studio would show something at EA, and now it comes out that they have registered a trademark for Titan.
Those two guys who were fired by Activision because they were going to make like a zillion dollars in Modern Gunfaire royalities or whatever are finally going to reveal their new game. Yep. That’s right. Just in time to stand on the throat of the gasping generation they helped shape, Zampella and West will be dropping their much ballyhooed IP on our skulls at this year’s E3. Prepare yourselves.
We get to learn so many neat things from the lawsuit Activision rained down on the heads of Jason West and Vince Zampella, the founders of Infinity Ward. The latest? The fat loot they were due in 2010. Lots, and lots of Junior Bacon Cheeseburgers worth.
There were a lot of things I expected out of the Activision vs. Electronic Arts grudge match: namely wasting money and hair-pulling. What I didn’t expect was to find Bungie’s next game inadvertently revealed.
The great litigation arm wrestling match between two video game Douchebag Titans is finally over. A day after settling with everyone who left Infinity Ward save its founders, EA and Activision have finally decided to play nice.
How is this for legal jostling. Activision has been locking horns with Ex-Infinity Ward founders Vince Zampella and Jason West for fucking years now. Yesterday in its latest move, Activision paid out $42 million to Ex-Infinity Ward staffers. That’s a lot of money, right? However ain’t none of it going to Vinny and Jason.
Jason West and Vince Zampella are the creators of Call of Duty, and also the two heads who got jettisoned out of Infinity Ward last year in that enormous story of subterfuge and corporate espionage. The two of them have rallied by creating Respawn Entertainment, and we’re finally getting word of their first game. A sci-fi shooter. Fuck yes.
