Call of Duty and Gaming Links, 26 April 2010

 The Respawn Entertainment front page - no shit.
    More employees have bailed on Infinity Ward bringing the total exodus to 18, as linked below. Meanwhile PCGamerUK has updated the credit scroll from Modern Warfare 2 with strikeouts to identify the ones who've gone on to pursue other career opportunities. You know what would be uber-cool? To see former Infinity Ward president Grant Collier, who has been seen only on milk cartons since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out, land over at Respawn Entertainment along with almost 20% of his former co-workers. As you can see from the above snapshot of the Respawn Homepage, they've made their intentions clear: They're hiring. On to the links:

Who's left at Infinity Ward now?

  • BASHandSlash: CoD's biggest hurdle? FTA: "But sadly, IW has not appeared to have taken any action to persuade the community that they actually are listening. Consider that,

    • IW has been unwilling to address the drawbacks of IW.net, such as its unacceptable lagginess.
    • IW has been unwilling to discuss, even limited dedicated server capability.
    • IW has been unwilling to address online issues like the shear chaotic randomness of the game. All suggestions, whether they were to nerf the international-house-of-douchedom kits, or to limit the rain of death caused by the non-player-controlled choppers, to name only a few have fallen on deaf ears."

  • Play.Tm: Steinberg fears for Infinity Wards' creative freedom.
  • MCV UK: Infinity Ward now has lost 18 employees
