Is This Respawn’s Game’s First Screenshot?

By Kieron Gillen on June 8th, 2010 at 7:43 pm.

Nazis. I hate those guys.

No, of course not. It’s something I scribbled in GIMP in a couple of minutes. But we’ll apparently have concrete information on “something” soon. GamesIndustry.biz report that the Ex-Infinity Ward group Respawn Entertainment will be up to something at E3. “big time announcement at E3 next week. stay tuned, kiddies!” they say on facebook, showing a Walker-worrying contempt for capitalisation. I’m actually not sure what to expect from a team who’ve existed for so short a span. I can’t see more than the game’s title and rough genre, and I doubt any imagery even as good as mine will be put out there. Hell, we’d be lucky with a logo. Or it could be the sort of Big Time Announcement which is more of interest to industry watchers than gamers, like some manner of media deal or major hires. Or maybe they’ve made up with Activision and are best buddies again. Well, let’s be honest. I suspect that’s as unlikely as whatever they’re working on being an FPS is likely.

EDIT: 1UP are reporting sources close to Respawn that this Facebook account is a fraud, despite the fact it’s existed for months with no censure – or identification that it’s fake – from Respawn. You almost admire the long-game played by – if it proves to be true – the account fakers. Do something vaguely credible for months at a time just to have one moment of lying. Which does nothing to excuse our culpability, of course. It’s an interesting thing, this E3 season.

    West and Zampella were always at the cutting edge of graphics.

    You managed to use GIMP? Impressive.

  4. Quasar says:

    I myself have existed for a very short spam indeed.

    “Or maybe they’ve made up with EA and are best buddies again.”

    I think you mean a certain other giant publisher here.

    Activision, presumably? Or have I missed something?

  7. Starky says:

    I’m willing to bet that whatever game they are talking about at E3 will be the one they have been planning since modern warfare 1 shipped, wanted to make and pitched Activision with – the one BobbyK refused and demanded MW2 off them.

  8. Centy says:

    I think you mean made up with Activision.

    What’s with the jaggies? Crank up that AA, dammit

  10. rocketman71 says:

    That screenshot looks more interesting that anything West & Zampella can do.

    I have no interested in whatever they may release since they tried their best to convert the PC into just another console with MW2.

    Apparently, this is fake, or questionable at best: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3179684

    If it is a screenshot from a game by the IW people, then that door will be non-functional!

  13. Raum says:

    Are you sure you didn’t mean to write seconds?

  14. RQH says:

    This screenshot is yet another example of the dumbing-down of games for consoles.
