I'm not sure if this is good or bad: good because maybe we won't be seeing a million shitty MW2 sequels, or bad because a whole studio is being held hostage.

Seriously though, I fail to see why Activision would keep the studio heads and send bouncers to the studio.

this is nothing more than contract negotiations. IW wants this and activision will only give that. either IW threatened to dissolve their agreement because IW was not getting what they wanted and these "bouncer types" are there to make sure that nothing is taken by those that are leaving. for example source code for current and or upcoming games. anything proprietary. Or this activision flexing and letting IW know that they rule the IW universe and they better get in line and shut up. this stuff happens everyday with more companies than one can imagine but this is big news for gamers because IW is a great developer. Im sure nothing big will come of this.

It's a bit odd to say they rule the IW universe, if I remember right the majority of the initial company was composed of developers from the MOH franchise. If they get burned they've proven they're willing to move already. Not the brightest idea honestly.

Sounds like a rumour made-publicity stunt.

No. What the hell kind of publicity stunt would that be?
Quite possibly the studio heads were canned. In potentially violent situations like this, security is standard.

Or people being fired? You know that part where they send in security to escort you out of the building with your box of pencils and junk from your desk so you don't steal source code and systems owned by the publisher? Oh that could never be a possibility though right?

These things happen. Makes people feel sorry for them or whatever. I'm not sure that's happening here since they'd really gain nothing but whatever.

So you're saying they may or may not have orchestrated a master plan whereby hired goons came to the offices (or maybe they didn't actually show and that was just made up), then collaborated with media to garner publicity and speculation so people would feel bad for them?

It's happened before. A very vague but interesting story that sprouts talk about IW all over the net, then the unveiling of something very large.

Yep! just not in the way you were expecting at this point with the CCO/CTO being laid off. Total publicity stunt, game companies having their co-founders laid off.

Dude, relax, it was just a theory.
