According to a Wired.com interview, West and Zampella were in talks with a number of publishers following their departure from Activision. These talks almost led to the pair signing a deal with THQ, not EA.

According to Bilson, the point in question was the matter of intellectual property ownership. After seeing Activision expand the Call of Duty brand, West and Zampella wanted to control any IP they developed at their new operation. While EA signed off on that deal with its current publishing arrangement with Respawn, THQ apparently would not.
Must have been a tough negotiation:

W & Z: Anything we create, we own.

EA: Uh, only if you agree to to ship it buggy as hell to make a Christmas deadline. And we won't pay you to provide support, or playtesting.

W & Z: Okay.
