More Infinity Ward Leads Resign from MW2 Studio

Earlier this morning, we learned that two more high-ranking developers at Modern Warfare 2 studio Infinity Ward had quit. Kotaku now reports that as many as four additional employees have resigned.

The departures have been suspected following the firing of studio heads Jason West and Vince Zampella, who officially announced their new studio Respawn Entertainment on Monday. Respawn is signed to an exclusive publishing deal with the Electronic Arts Partners program, which allows a studio to retain control of its intellectual property.

The reported Infinity Ward departures are:

  • Steve Fukuda - Lead Designer

  • Zied Reike - Lead Designer

  • Rayme Vinson - Programmer

  • Chris Cherubini - Lead Artist

This brings the total number of departures from Infinity Ward, including West and Zameplla, up to ten. No one has officially accepted positions with West and Zampella's Respawn Entertainment, but you can bet that you'll be reading that soon.
