A settlement has been reached in the Call of Duty lawsuit between Activision and creators Jason West and Vince Zampella.
Though the settlement has been agreed upon, attorneys state that the terms of the settlement are strictly confidential.
“We have reached a settlement in this matter as to all parties and all claims,” said attorney Daniel Petrocelli. “Dismissals will be filed soon.”
Activision also did not comment on the settlement results, but released a short statement staying that the lawsuit will not have an impact on their earnings for this year.
“The company does not believe that the incremental one-time charges related to the settlement will result in a material impact on its GAAP or non-GAAP earnings per share outlook for the current quarter or the calendar year, due to stronger-than-expected operating performance in the current quarter.”
Though the case was going to go to trial, reports say that on Wednesday, the both sides’ lawyers met behind closed doors to discuss a settlement in the case. Those at the courthouse when a settlement was reached say that West and Zampella looked quite pleased as they exited the courthouse. I would be too if I won a court case against a gaming publishers that refused millions of dollars worth of bonuses for the success of my game.
