Activision Blizzard Inc.  told the world Tuesday that Jason West and Vince Zampella, top brass executives at developer Infinity Ward, are no longer with the company.  So what the heck is going on here?

Vince Zampella (Former CEO) and Jason West (Chief Technology Officer) were behind Modern Warfare 2, which in January passed the $1billon mark in sales.  Activision has said they plan to make a new business unit around Call of Duty to focus on online content and expansions.  The shake-up comes a day after Activision said it was looking into breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at its Infinity Ward studio.

Who knows if the rest of the team are going to follow them to new adventures, but with the current state of the economy, Activision may have an upper hand on retaining prized employees at their Infinity Ward branch.
