Ex-Infinity Ward Staff Make Up 75% of Respawn Staff

01 Jul, 2011

This blurred image is our first hint at Respawn's 1st game. Guesses?

While not too much of a surprise for those that followed the fallout of Activision’s firing of Vince Zampella and Jason West; Respawn Entertainment’s newly launched company profiles, via their official website, lists 75% of its current staff as coming from Infinity Ward. In total 40 of the 53 paid employees (75%) all worked with Zampella and West at their previous company before either resigning in protest to the duo’s firing or being laid off themselves. The rest – at the time of this report – have been hired on from Sony Santa Monica.
