Four more employees may have left Infinity Ward

According to a tweet from 3drealms’ George Broussard, four more Infinity Ward employees have left Activision today.

Here’s the tweet:

4 more people leave Infinity Ward today. Near 50% of dev staff. ETA till IW closure? Activision earnings report in a week.

This is not confirmed by any other source as of yet, so hold on to your hats just in case he may be a day behind in the news.

Doubtful though.

If true, this means the grand total is over 30.

No names were mentioned in the tweet.

Former and current employees with the company are suing Activision for unpaid bonuses, and analyst Mick Hickey believes that what is left of the company is about to be absorbed by Activision.

Activision’s financial call to investors is next week – expect Kotick and co. to address the situation further.
