Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling maintained an optimistic tone when addressing morale at the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 studio following the dismissal of its top two executives and a subsequent lawsuit against Activision.
In an interview with GamesRadar, Bowling says it's "business as usual" at the studio as they prepare to release the first batch of downloadable content for the first-person shooter.
"Right now morale is high, because we're really excited to get this DLC out. Any time we're just about to launch something out to the community, morale boosts up, because you're excited to see what your players think of it, and to watch them get on there and see what tactics they come up with," Bowling tells the website.
Earlier this month, former Infinity Ward execs Jason West and Vince Zampella sued Activision for breach of contract. They are seeking $36 million and the rights to all Modern Warfare branded titles. Activision has called the lawsuit "meritless."
As for the upcoming DLC, a map pack called Stimulus Package, Bowling defended the $15 price tag. "I think from a content standpoint, anyone who is playing Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer and is dedicating a lot of hours to it is definitely going to get their money's worth from this map pack," he tells GamesRadar.
The downloadable content features five multiplayer maps, including two from 2007's Call of Duty 4. It will be available on Xbox 360 next week.
