Maybe it's better that the IW crew get out from under Activision. If Activision seriously thinks it can cut the head off a snake as large as IW and expect the same quality of games afterward, the company is simply mistaken. Activision may have the MW name, but that will lose steam quickly if the quality slips (just look at the Guitar Hero franchise). Apparently, ActiBlizzard isn't happy being the largest publisher and raking in tons of dough with WoW; the company needs a new cash cow. Personally, I hope there is a mass exodus and IW's crew finds a new publisher.
