Respawn Founders Tease "Big Announcement" For E3
We all want to leave the Activision/Infinity Ward nastiness behind us and return to a focus on gaming, especially because there's such great talent involved in the aforementioned snafu.
So, now that embattled former IW execs Jason West and Vince Zampella have started up their own studio - Respawn Entertainment (still have to chuckle when I read the name) - and they've already secured a publisher in EA, we all want to know: whatcha makin'? Well, according to the Facebook page for the resurrected dynamic duo, we're going to get a massive announcement at E3 next week. The update is pretty straightforward:
"Big time announcement at E3 next week. Stay tuned, kiddies!"
This follows hot on the heels of what EA Partners head man David DeMartini said last month, which is in contrast to the West/Zampella announcement: "I don't think we're going to see anything from them [Respawn] at E3," he said. But then again, let's maybe read between the lines...we won't see anything from them, but we don't necessarily "see" an announcement, now do we? We know it's very early; hell, the studio just opened their doors a little while back, so we shouldn't expect huge debut trailers for whatever they've got in the hopper. An announcement and pertinent details of the game in question, however...? Sure, why not?
We'll definitely be interested to hear what Respawn has to say next week, that's for sure. They've got half the Infinity Ward team over there by now, don't they? j/k
