The settlement between Activision and Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella could be worth tens of millions, according to Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz.

In March 2010 Call of Duty publisher Activision fired the then heads of Infinity Ward for insubordination. West and Zampella countered this with a lawsuit alleging that the real reason they were fired was so Activision wouldn't have to pay them millions of dollars in royalties. The pair attempted to gain ownership of the Modern Warfare brand, something Activision clearly didn't want to give up.

Creutz believes that investors will ignore the impact of the settlement on the company when looking at the health of Activision as a whole.
