GameInformer has reported on the mounting speculation on NeoGAF. A screen shot of FaceBook has surfaced alleging that Jason West has been terminated. At the time of publishing this image has not been verified.
Kotaku is reporting that Jason West’s LinkedIn profile indicates he is no longer working at Infinity Ward as of March 2010. Evidently this was not a mutually agreed upon exit.
