Exodus continues at Infinity Ward

CoD studio loses more key staffers

The very public sacking of studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West from Infinity Ward has precipitated an exodus of staff from the Call of Duty studio.

The latest staff members to walk are lead designer Mackey McCandish and programmer Jon Shining, both of whom have confirmed their departures.

Since Zampella and West were ejected from the studio building by Activision senior management, the total number of staff to leave has risen to six.

McCandish and Shining's announcement follow the departure of design lead Todd Aldermann and lead software engineer Francesco Gigliotti.

It remains to be seen what effect this could have on the studio's next contribution to the Call of Duty franchise.

Thanks Develop.
