In a statement issued to the L.A. Times, Electronic Arts responded to the claims filed yesterday by Activision in the lawsuit concerning the creators of Modern Warfare, Jason West and Vince Zampella's exodus from Acitivion.
"This is a PR play filled with pettiness and deliberate misdirection. Activision wants to hide the fact that they have no credible response to the claim of two artists who were fired and now just want to get paid for their work."
Barring any kind of settlement between the parties, the ball is in the court's hands: They're expected to rule on whether EA will be included in the case sometimes in January.
