A few years back, there was a big commotion about Infinity Ward Co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella leaving Infinity Ward over a dispute with Activision over bonuses. The two developers then left Activision’s fold to join up with Activision’s rival, EA. The duo joined EA as part of a new development team aptly named Respawn Entertainment.
So far, we haven’t heard much about Respawn. The first bit of news to come out regarding the company is that one of its founders, Jason West, is leaving the company he helped form. According to Kotaku West left Respawn last May in the wake of family issues.
At this point, these are still just rumors. If those rumors are true, I wish West the best of luck in dealing with whatever family issues are going on.
