A major legal dispute over the royalties associated with the video game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” has finally been settled.
The dispute over the profits from the top selling video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2” was between the publisher Activision and two of the game’s developers. The BBC reports that the dispute escalated into the profits, which ran into millions of dollars.
The dispute happened after the two developers, Jason West and Vincent Zampella, were fired from Activision. The two programers argued that they were dismissed in March 2010 so that the company could avoid paying them millions in royalties, which had been agreed in their contracts. In turn, Activision countersued, arguing that the developers had stolen company secrets.
NPR notes that the two developers were seeking $1 billion. However, the details of the final settlement are unknown as the agreement has been reached out of court.
Hollywood Reporter states that Jason West and Vincent Zampella went on to found the game company Respawn Entertainment, which has developed several titles for the video game company EA.
