Infinity Ward Lose Two More Key Staff Members
Written Tuesday, April 06, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Following the uncerimonious firing of Infinity Ward studio founders Vince Zampella and Jason West, two more key players from the Modern Warfare 2 developer have decided to jump ship, each taking roughly eight years of Call of Duty-related experience with them in the process.
Lead Designer, Todd Alderson and Lead Software Engineer, Francesco Gigliotti have both updated their LinkedIn profiles to show that they're no longer with the company. Alderson was previously involved in Modern Warfare's multiplayer and story, so as such was a key member of personnel at Infinity Ward.
According to Kotaku, it's currently unclear under what circumstances the pair left the company, but sources close to Infinity Ward suggest that they both resigned.
Zampella and West meanwhile are signed to a Hollywood talent agency. It's been just over a month since the founding duo were fired by Activision for "breaches of contract and insubordination."
