The inside story of Activision Vs. Respawn


Vanity Fair recently did an article giving us an inside look at the politics behind the game industry; primarily with concern to the story of the break up between the creators of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Activision. The creators left the company to found Respawn Games with Activision's rival publisher EA Games. It's a fascinating article that will interest anyone interested in getting into videogame development and how control of intellectual properties is handeled when there's billions of dollars at stake. I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested about getting into the industry or enjoys studying the gossipy business behind the games.
