Fired Call Of Duty Staffers Zampella & West Sign Up With EA, Form Respawn Entertainment

Posted by Sammy Barker

Remember those fired Infinity Ward staffers Vince Zampella and Jason West? Y'know, the ones who practically created the Call Of Duty franchise

Yeah, erm, they just signed a new publishing deal with EA. Their new studio's named Respawn Entertainment.

The new studio will retain full control over the IPs they develop, while EA will handle worldwide publishing and distribution.

This is absolutely monstrous news. Like of megaton amplitude.

“Respawn Entertainment marks a fresh start for Jason and me,” said Vince Zampella, General Manager of Respawn Entertainment. “For the past decade we led a great development team and poured our hearts into creating an epic game franchise. 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.”

This completes a full circle of weirdness for the duo. The pair were originally behind EA's Medal Of Honor franchise before leaving for Activision.
