Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 developer Infinity Ward, who recently lost leadership over an internal dispute with publisher Activision that's now in litigation, has last two more employees.

Kotaku originally broke the news, citing the Linkedin profiles of lead designer Todd Alderman and software engineer Francesco Gigliotti. Both Linkedin profiles reflect working at Infinity Ward as part of their "past" employment status. Neither has updated with their future plans.

Alderman has worked at Infinity Ward for more than eight years. Gigliotti had been at the studio for nearly as long, clocking in just under eight years with the Modern Warfare developer.

It's unclear if Alderman and Gigliotti have left as a consequence of former Infinity Ward studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West leaving. An internal Activision memo obtained by G4 indicated Activision suspected Zampella and West were in conversations with Electronic Arts.

I'm a little late on reporting this one, but I wanted to make sure G4 readers were aware of the latest developments. Keep your eyes on G4 for more, as the status of Infinity Ward changes.
