EA Straight Up Calls Activision’s lawsuit ‘Absurd’
Now that Infinity Ward’s Jason West and Vince Zampella and Activision have settled their lawsuit out of court, thus denying the gaming press months of delicious airing-of-dirty-laundry, we can all get back to the important business of constantly pointing out the high achieving mediocrity of Activision games. Well, not quite. First we need to check in and see what the interested parties have to say.
Hmmm, nothing it seems. The terms are confidential. But that hasn’t stopped the other party in this legal mess, Electronic Arts, from offering up their opinion on the matter. Fresh from their own settlement with Activision, in a statement given to Kotaku, an EA spokesman served up this little bon mot:
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.
You know what else is absurd? Trying to figure out who to root for in a cat fight between Activision and EA. OHSNAPSON.
