While Jason Ward and Vince Zampella start a new life with EA at Respawn Entertainment, Infinity Ward continues to suffer as the Modern Warfare 2 studio suffers three more walkouts yesterday.
Senior Animator Bruce Ferriz, programmer Jon Shiring and lead designer Mackey McCandlish quit at separate times yesterday, racking the tally of staff departures in the past month to five (not including West and Zampella).
Shiring and McCandlish announced their leave on Twitter and Facebook respectively, at roughly the same time
Respawn Entertainment was officially revealed.
Rather than shack up with his former studio heads, Ferriz revealed to IGN
that he has moved on to Big Red Button Entertainment.UPDATE:
Just as soon as we reported this story, another Infinity Ward staffer has jumped ship - namely lead artist Chris Cherubini, who confirmed his departure to Kotaku
earlier today. END UPDATE:
The fallout follows an intense legal battle
that continues to rage between West, Zampella and former publisher Activision.
