Activision and EA reach Settlement over Infinity Ward Case
Activision and EA have apparently reached a settlement in the Infinity Ward court case involving EA out of court.
LA Times reporter Ben Fritz tweeted a joint statement from ATVI and EA: “Activision and EA have agreed to put this matter behind them.”
“The companies said at a hearing today in California state court in Los Angeles that they will file a settlement agreement in court. The judge presiding over the case denied Activision’s bid to delay a trial over claims in a lawsuit brought by two creators of the video game,” said Bloomberg.
The EA court case began when Activision countersued, naming EA as a defendant and accusing the company of trying to pry the developers away while they were still under contract.
