Usually delays in the game industry relate to release dates slipping further into the future, but this time, it’s a lawsuit that will be missing it’s date. The case that former Infinity Ward co-founder’s Vince Zampella and Jason West filed against Activision filed in March of 2010 has been pushed back from it’s original court date of May 7th, to May 29th. If we take a trip back in time we see that Zampella and West are suing Activision for 125 million dollars in unpaid bonuses dating back years. Also an import item of note is the counter-suit filed by Activision against Zampella and West for conspiring with EA while still being with Activision.

What’s alarming isn’t the sheer numbers posted but that the number of images people have taken could wrap around the moon a little over twice! from Bungie.net…
