Activision, EA settle differences in 'Call of Duty' lawsuit Electronic Arts had been named as a defendant in a dispute over Call of Duty royalties.
It stems back to the firing of Jason West and Vince Zampella by Actvision. The pair sued Activision, claiming they were owed around $30 million in unpaid royalties. Activision countersued, claiming that Electronic Arts had attempted to sway West and Zampella away with job opportunities.

EA was named as a defendant in the case, but this week the publishers decided to bury the hatchet. "Activision and EA have agreed to put this matter behind them," the publishers said in a joint statement.

This does not, however, settle the case between West/Zampella and Activision. Recently, details came to light that suggested Activision had set out to find any dirt on the two Infinity Ward heads before the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
