The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Zampella And West Now Seeking $1 Billion From Activision

Posted on Thursday, May 17 @ 13:04:50 Eastern by Keri_Honea

The drama between the former heads of Infinity Ward and Activision never seems to cease. According to a recent SEC financial filing from Activision, Jason West and Vince Zampella are now demanding over $1 billion in damages. There is no word as of yet while the sum jumped the shark from $36 million to $1 billion.

The following is text directly from the filing:

After concluding an internal human resources inquiry into breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at Infinity Ward, the Company terminated its employment of Jason West and Vince Zampella on March 1, 2010.

On March 3, 2010, West and Zampella filed a complaint against the Company in Los Angeles Superior Court for breach of contract and wrongful termination, among other claims. In their complaint, West and Zampella alleged damages, including punitive damages, in excess of $36 million, an amount they have since significantly increased during discovery to over $1 billion, as well as declaratory relief.

On April 9, 2010, the Company filed a cross complaint against West and Zampella, asserting claims for breach of contract and fiduciary duty, among other claims. The Company is seeking damages and declaratory relief.

The case is currently set to go before a judge on May 29th, just in time for E3. Hooray!
