Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Given 18 Rating In UK

When Activision said they looked forward to working with Infinity Ward’s “deep bench” of talent, in response to the former heads of Infinity Ward forming their own company with Electronic Arts, clearly they weren’t counting on that bench getting up and walking out the door. However, today it’s being reported that another batch of staffers have departed the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare developer.

Modern Warfare 2
lead designers Steve Fukuda and Zied Reike have both resigned from IW, as have programmer Rayme Vinson and lead artist Chris Cherubini, reports Kotaku. As was brought up yesterday following the revelation of several other key IW departures, whether these individuals will flock to Respawn Entertainment, the newly announced company formed by ex-IW leaders Vince Zampella and Jason West, remains to be seen.

However, given their histories together, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising. For instance, as Kotaku points out, Fakuda left Medal of Honor developer 2015 Inc., which Zampella and West founded, to join the duo’s next studio, IW, and both Fukuda and Rieke were nominated for best game writing by the Writer’s Guild of America, alongside Todd Alderman and Mackey McCandlish, both of whom recently left IW as well. Where all these folks will end up isn't clear just yet, but what is clear is that Acitivision needs to find a way to stop the bleeding, and fast.
