After a month of legal drama between Jason West, Vince Zampella and their former corporate overlords at Activision, the predictable has occurred. Announced in a press release today, West and Zampella have formed a new studio, Respawn Entertainment, and have established an exclusive publishing partnership with chief Activision rival, Electronic Arts.
I mean, really, we all saw this coming, right?
"Respawn Entertainment marks a fresh start for Jason and me," said Vince Zampella in the release, followed by the traditionally positive statements which publicly accompany all new relationships.
It'll be interesting, with all of this hub-bub, to see how active the new company is in poaching talent from Infinity Ward. No projects have been announced, as they're really just starting to get the team together. How much do you want to bet that they make a military-themed shooter?
You can read the full release after the fold.
