Right now, Respawn Entertainment doesn't have a logo, office or proper website. All that's on www.respawn.com is a call for job applicants, as former Infinity Ward leaders Jason West and Vince Zampella are the only guys working at Respawn for the moment. When I spoke with West and Zampella yesterday, however, they did have a promise to fans about their next game.
"It's all about fans and coming up with something that's going to make their head explode and get them completely excited and give them a ton of fun," said West over the phone. "We can't wait to start talking to them about what we're doing and what they'd love to see us do."
Respawn doesn't have a game in development yet. The studio does have a deal with Electronic Arts. EA will be funding the not-yet-decided Respawn project and likely subsequent sequels. The key difference here, however, is that Respawn owns everything about the game -- not EA.
