EA: Infinity Ward incident damaged Modern Warfare franchise

May 12, 2010

EA: Infinity Ward incident damaged Modern Warfare franchise Things are pretty dismal between Infinity Ward and Activision as Bobby Kotick recently reported that 35 employees have left the company. He also indicated that more resignations are to be expected. EA is now saying that this incident may have damaged a great franchise.

According to CVG, EA Partners boss David DeMartini believes that the future of Modern Warfare franchise may be damaged. DeMartini states, “A franchise is damaged – maybe never to be the same again. But then at the same time other things spring up. As one thing dies, you have Respawn popping up – who are going to do other great things in collaboration with us now.”

Out of the ashes a new studio Respawn Entertainment was formed by the former Infinity Ward studio heads, West and Zampella.  DeMartini feels that Respawn Entertainment will go on to achieve “great things” in the future.

When asked by CVG if something similar could have happened at EA, DeMartini stated that it’s something that hasn’t happened at the company before. He states: “But what I’d say is you haven’t seen any internal studios up and leave EA. If Infinity Ward was an internal studio at EA would things have been different? I think yes – but I’m biased.”

The damage may have been done with Infinity Ward, but I’m sure everyone will be interested to see what Respawn will deliver in the near future.
