LOS ANGELES -- The makers of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2'' and game publisher Activision Blizzard Inc. have agreed to lay down arms in a legal fight over millions of dollars in royalties.
The two sides said Thursday that they had settled the lawsuit. The terms were not disclosed.
Jason West and Vincent Zampella, former heads of game studio Infinity Ward, had sued Activision for wrongful dismissal after the company fired them in January 2010. The pair also sought more than $36 million in bonuses based on the game's profits.
They later formed a new company called Respawn Entertainment LLC, which is developing games for Activision's rival Electronic Arts Inc.
Two weeks ago, Activision and EA settled a lawsuit over whether EA unfairly recruited the executives while they were under contract.
