Activision Decapitates Infinity Ward?

This is, I suspect, only the start of a story which is going to grow and grow. G4 broke the rumour yesterday that "a bunch of bouncer types" had showed up at Infinity Ward, following the Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West's reported meeting with Activision in the morning - which they hadn't returned from. Kotaku picked up that Jason West's facebook account claimed to be drinking and no-longer employed. G4 uncovers that morning Activision had an SEC filing stating investigation into "breaches of contract and insubordination by two senior employees at Infinity Ward." And now VG247 are reporting rumours that unpaid royalties to Infinity Ward was part of the cause of stress. Oh - and Tim Schafer says the best one liner about the whole thing.

Really, all we've got right now is theories. Though, like Rock8man at Qt3, Bobby Kotick's hailing of "skepticism, pessimism, and fear" does tend to leap worryingly easily to mind.
