One of Kotaku’s Infinity Ward sources recently told the website that Infinity Ward, as it was previously known, is “dead, and will continue to crumble.”
Events at the troubled company have accelerated since last week’s announcement that fired ex-IW heads, Jason Ward and Vince Zampella, would be forming Respawn Entertainment.
“They’re scared shitless,” a source told Kotaku. “They never saw this coming. They can’t believe what’s going on. At first they gave us some bullshit about moving up payments of all the money they owe us to sooner increments. … But with the announcement of Respawn and all the people leaving, they just got there heads in their hands.”
Including the terminated West and Zampella, 13 Infinity Ward team members have left the company since March 1.
