The legal fight between Modern Warfare creators Jason West and Vince Zampella against Activision has been given a court date. The sparks will begin to fly on May 7... provided, of course, the parties involved don't come to some sort of settlement before then.
At stake is potentially millions and batwillions of dollars. The parties are fighting over Call of Duty royalties, bonuess and a host of other contentious legal issues. In other words, it's probably going to get ugly; make some popcorn.
“I’m really looking forward to having our day in Court,” Zampella told Forbes, but in spite of his seeming enthusiasm, I'm still putting my money on a settlement. There's just too much money at stake for these big companies to be found in the middle of a knock-down-drag-out court fight. But hey, I could be wrong. Let's hope so, if only for the entertainment value.
