This back-and-forth between Activision and Infinity Ward is not going to end anytime soon, it seems. The latest update is that 38 employees from the developer have joined together to file a lawsuit against the uber-publisher for unpaid Modern Warfare 2 bonuses.

It should be stated that not all of the 38 have left Infinity Ward yet. G4's coverage of the suit has a few choice quotes from Bruce Isaacs, one of the attorneys representing the "Infinity Ward Employee Group."

Allegedly, Activision withheld the owed money "in an attempt to force employees of Infinity Ward to continue to work at a job that many of them did not want just so Activision could force them to complete the development, production, and delivery of Modern Warfare 3."

They're looking to "recover between $75 million and $125 million, if not more, in compensatory damages," plus "the additional amount of $75 million to $500 million as an award for punitive damages."

For a specific breakdown of where those numbers stem from, along with a more comprehensive summary -- y'know, not shortened down to four paragraphs -- follow G4's report.
