Jason West leaves Respawn Entertainment, official statement

Respawn Entertainment was making an FPS that they were planning to show this year, but they have a few hiccups.

Jason West who founded the studio with Vince Zampella has left the studio and Vince has confirmed the departure and has given a statement on the matter.

Both these guys left Infinity Ward to join EA and set up a new studio and began working on an FPS that was originally rumoured to be releasing in 2013.

“Jason has left Respawn to take care of some family issues. We have worked together on some amazing accomplishments over the years, starting with an early Segasoft project that never shipped. It is sad to see things come to an end, but there are times when change is best for growth, both personally and professionally,” the statement read.

“I wish Jason the best and send my best wishes to his family. Respawn continues to amaze me, the team here is resilient and talented. E3 will be therapeutic for us, as we finally get to start showing our work again. I know the team was excited about the response we got from just admitting we were going to attend.”

More information will be revealed on their game at E3.
