In 2010, the co-founders of Infinity Ward, which created the now massive Call of Duty FPS game franchise for Activision, were fired from that company. The co-founders later created a new studio, Respawn Entertainment, and a bunch of Infinity Ward team members left to join the new company.
Now, nearly three years later, we may finally find out what Respawn has been working on for all this time. Co-founder Vince Zampella used his Twitter page to post the following message:
I've gotten a 'few' questions about @e3expo plans this year. Yes, we will finally be at E3!— Vince Zampella (@VinceZampella) February 25, 2013
He later posted up another Twitter message, saying, "I have no intention of showing up empty handed! I can't say anything else right now." All in all it sounds like Respawn will finally show off their first game at E3 2013 in Los Angeles in June.
Respawn has a publishing deal with Electronic Arts for whatever game they are working on. However, unlike the Call of Duty franchise, Respawn will hold onto the rights for their games with EA acting more like a distributor of their game franchise. It should be interesting to see if Respawn comes up with another first person shooter game or of they have something else in the works.
