Very Modern Warfare: Respawn Partner EA
Shortly after the news of the legal barrage starting, news breaks that the ejected Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella have formed a new company - the wittily named, minimialistically site-d Respawn - which will partner with EA to produce their next game. Eurogamer's long interview with West and Zampella reveals few facts - there's much they can't comment on, either due to legal reasons or because their company hasn't even offices or staff yet - but manages to entertainingly capture the mood of the pair right now. The key fact is: whatever they create will be theirs, rather than the publisher's. But what to expect? "Well, we hope that it will be a fresh and new experience that will surprise people, but we're not going to make Boom Blox or something, it's going to be a big huge game," says West. I dare speculate that it'll involve a weapon sticking out of the bottom right of the screen.
