EA won a big coup when Jason West and Vince Zampella left their cushy jobs at Infinity Ward to escape the tyrannical fists of Activision and start a brand new studio called Respawn Entertainment.
Their exodus from Activision has been one of the most childish and petty arguments ever to be dragged through the streets of the Internet with members of both teams accusing the other of being real mean folk.
At Gamescom this year Activision publishing manager Eric Hirshberg called for a ceasefire, but Mr. Brown shot back with more snide remarks calling their rival weak for trying to back out of the melee.
