Activision & EA End Modern Warfare Legal Battle
It appears that Activision Blizzard reached a settlement of its $400 million claim against EA that was part of a legal dispute that was supposed to kick off a week from now with the Modern Warfare 2 devs.

Activision lawyer Beth Wilkinson said: "Activision and Electronic Arts have decided to put this matter behind them."

The settlement removes Electronic Arts from a trial that pits Activision against the former heads of its Infinity Ward studio who created the billion-dollar "Call of Duty" franchise. Activision fired the developers, Jason West and Vince Zampella, in 2010, alleging they plotted with Electronic Arts to leave Activision and set up a new independent studio.

Activision had accused Electronic Arts of disrupting Infinity Ward by trying to lure away the two developers while they still had two years left on their contract. West and Zampella sued Activision after they were fired and seek more than $1 billion in damages.
