Ex-IW Devs: Respawn “A Total Reset”
West and Zampella left Activision acrimoniously last month, but unveiled Respawn Entertainment today. "This is a total reset," Zampella told the LAT. "We're starting again from ground zero. It's daunting and exciting." According to the article Respawn's first title will be finished in two or three years.
"It has a certain irony to it," Frank Gibeau, EA Games president, said of the pair's return to EA, years after working on the Medal of Honor franchise. "But the fact that they were in this situation was a stunning opportunity for us."
Although details of Respawn's first project weren't discussed, West confirmed it would be of "huge, summer blockbuster" quality, and that they would consider spinning-off the franchise into movies and comic-books.
