They and some other employees at Infinity Ward that left with them sued Activision saying that Activision owed them about $54,000,000 and broke a promise for them to be allowed to develop more than just Call of Duty games. In response, Activison filed a counter-suit alleging misuse of company property and insubordination by West and Zampella. The suit went to trial in May 2011. Anyway, due to this incident, Infinity Ward was short-handed and thus they got outside support for development of the campaign mode from Sledgehammer Games, who were originally working on a Call of Duty MMO, with that idea later scrapped, while Raven Software got the job of doing the multiplayer mode.
those two people are also now working on a sci-fi shooter that's supposed to contest halo 4 when that comes out because bungie isn't working on this one

And yes jedi, there are plenty of cod fans, me very much included, ive played 1-6 and some of the not-so-great gamecube versions too
