Modern Warfare 4 will happen and Activision talks firing Infinity Ward heads

See also

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4" is as sure to happen as the sun is rising tomorrow, but for those who did follow the Infinity Ward and Activision fallout, there is some new discussion regarding the situation.

According to a report from GameSpot yesterday, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said the decision to fire Jason West and Vince Zampella was a simple one to make.

"You find out two executives are planning to break their contracts, keep the money you gave them and steal 40 employees. What do you do? You fire them," Kotick said.

The what was sure to be a multi-million dollar case was settled this past May.

West and Zampella are now currently working for a studio overseen by EA and they are planning to reveal their first game from Respawn relatively soon.

Kotick has not been painted in a pretty light from gamers and press, but whether or not that is justified is another matter.

"Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" and the "Black Ops" series have continued the success of the franchise since the departure of Zampella and West.

The next "Modern Warfare" is rumored, but more expected, to debut toward the end of this coming year, and it is also said to be a next-generation title.

What did you think about this whole situation?
