Eight more leave Infinity Ward

Trickle becomes flood as Respawn grows.

It has emerged that eight more staff left Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward on Friday.

The full-time IW-watchers at Kotaku and G4 put it together from their moles (and the Facebook and LinkedIn profiles of the developers).

Although it's not known what plans the eight have, their resignations came straight after seven of their former colleagues revealed that they were joining former IW heads Jason West and Vince Zampella's new outfit Respawn Entertainment.

The new casualties (or beneficiaries?) of the messy bust-up between Activision and the founders of its prized studio are: senior designers Mohamman Alavi, Chad Grenier, and Brent McLeod; designers Jason McCord, Charlie Wiederhold, Keith Bell and Preston Glenn; and programmer Chris Lambert.

With Activision confident that it can maintain Infinity Ward's prominence and a packed release schedule of Call of Duty games, its recruiters are going to be busy.
