They may have lost their jobs and their possibly-the-most-successful-videogame-franchise-in-history, but former Infinity Ward bosses Jason West and Vince Zampella are getting right back on the horse. Dubbing their new endeavor Respawn Entertainment, the two have hopped into bed with former rival Electronic Arts.
“For the past decade we led a great development team and poured our hearts into creating an epic game franchise,” said Zampella. “. We’re very proud of what we built – and proud that so many millions of fans enjoyed those games. Today we hope to do it all over again — open a new studio, hire a great team, and create brand new games with a new partner, EA.”
“Now that the team is in control of the games and brands, we can ensure that the fans are treated as well as they deserve,” added West.
On a – we’re sure – totally unrelated note, no less than eight veteran Infinity Ward employees have left the rapidly deflating developer within the past week. We can’t even begin to imagine where they might be going.
