Jason West and Vince Zampella’s attorney have just annoounced that they have reached a settlement in the Activision and Infinity Ward case. According to LA Times “all parties have reached a settlement in the dispute, the terms of which are strictly confidential.”
The trial was originally delayed to tomorrow June 1st because the Judge said there were “logistical difficulties assembling a sufficient jury pool” and was set to last 22 days however it appears both sides have reached a settlement before the case could even begin.
UPDATE: EA, Activision and Respawn comment on the settlement:
“Activision’s refusal to pay their talent and attempt to blame EA were absurd. This settlement is a vindication of Vince and Jason, and the right of creative artists to collect the rewards due for their hard work.”
“Activision Blizzard, Inc. today announced that all parties to the litigation have reached a settlement of the dispute, the terms of which are strictly confidential. The company does not believe that the incremental one-time charges related to the settlement will result in a material impact on its GAAP or non-GAAP earnings per share outlook for the current quarter or the calendar year, due to stronger-than-expected operating performance in the current quarter.”
