Default Even more people leave Infinity Ward

Infinity Ward is losing lots of employees in the past months.
It seems like most of the employees of IW stay trusted with West and Zampella and are heading over to Respawn Entertainment (West and Zampella's new studio which is part of EA).

This is the list of people who've left so far:

1) Jason West -- President, Game Director
2) Vince Zampella -- CEO, Co-Founder
3) Francesco Gigliotti -- Lead Software Engineer
4) Jon Shiring -- Lead Programmer
5) Chris Cherubini -- Lead Artist
6) Bruce Ferriz -- Senior Animator
7) Todd Alderman -- Lead Designer
8) Mackey McCandlish -- Lead Designer
9) Steve Fukuda -- Lead Designer
10) Zied Reike -- Lead Designer
11) Rayme Vinson -- Programmer
12) Mark Grigsby -- Lead Animator
13) Paul Messerly -- Lead Character Animator

Perfect time for a lower ranking IW member to take the lead and show what he or she is made of.

Well yeah, it seems like Jay had to use an older database backup.
I'm wondering what's going to change.

Employees of Infinity Ward keep leaving.
There are four more out of the studio now.

Have they gotten their bonuses for MW2 yet or are they just not expecting Activision Blizzard to pay up in a timely fashion?

They will be paid only if they don't leave AND Activision wins the trial.
