The publishers in a joint statement said this:
Activision and EA have agreed to put this matter behind them.
The terms of the settlement have not been confirmed yet and no-doubt ever will, but this does put an end to the lawsuit between the publishers, it all started when Activision alleged that EA illegally attempted to recruit Jason West and Vince Zampella while they were still under contract by Activision.
The ongoing case between Activision and the former bosses of Infinity Ward is still very much present and will come to ahead in court on 29 May.
It seems that Activision are putting their immediate focus onto West and Zampella as it was reported that Activision paid $42 million to former Infinity Ward staff for overdue royalties on Modern Warfare 2.
