If you recall, Infinity Ward studio heads Jason West and Vince Zampella were forcefully fired from their company March 1st of this year. The two then responded by filing a lawsuit against Activsion, their parent company, for unpaid royalties. It seems these unpaid royalties are a tradition for Activision now, according to this new rumor.
According to Kotaku sources, Infinity Ward employees are holding out due to unpaid royalties. Many expected employees to leave the studio, but due to expected earnings, they are not yet leaving. Infinity Ward, traditionally, have paid staff either regular or low salaries. This is made up when the employees are paid massive royalties, to balance it out. The same sources also say that Activision is continually holding royalties back to keep employees at the company.
