Another twist in the tortuous case of Infinity Ward (and maybe Electronic Arts) Vs. Activision: According to documents obtained by Kotaku, the legal case is taking a financial toll on Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella.

According to the documents, Activision knew of EA's alleged involvement in the case for half a year, and that the company only waited until December to try to add the company to the case in a try to get the case pushed back further.

Vince and Zampella say they'd like to get the case up and running faster, they'd like EA not named as a party to the matter as they "are paying for this litigation from our own funds" and that to date the cost of the case has "[exceeded] our combined annual salaries."

Worse news for gamers: Zampella and West say that the case could delay ReSpawn, as "any delay of the trial in this lawsuit would increase the financial and non-financial burdens and would continue to distract us from running our business and earning a living."
