Activision and Electronic Arts have reached an out-of-court settlement in their portion of the legal battle over EA's hiring of Jason West and Vince Zampella, reports Bloomberg. The case involving the two former bosses at Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward is still scheduled to be heard in court, though the attorney for the pair suggests today's settlement reflects on that case.
"Activision dragged EA into the case hoping to distract from Activisionís wretched conduct towards West and Zampella," Robert Schwartz, a lawyer for the two developers, said in an e- mailed statement. "In dismissing EA today, Activision admits that it was never going to convince anyone that EA conspired with West and Zampella to breach their contracts or did anything else improper."
