Respawn Entertainment Launches Website With Blurry Image, Baseless Rumors of Dinosaurs Run Amok

Time to get out the magnifying glass and the Photoshop sharpen filter.

Respawn Entertainment has sent its biggest sign that it's coming together as a studio with the launch of its website, complete with a blurry image, the first peek at its unannounced game.

At first glance, the image tells us nothing, but if there's something to be parsed besides a gloomy sky and what I think is a farm building, that's for Internet sleuths smarter than me to figure out.

(I'm hoping people rampantly speculating that they see dinosaurs comes true.)

Respawn was founded by ex-Infinity Ward leaders Vince Zampella and Jason West, who are still embroiled in a complicated lawsuit with Activision, who owns Infinity Ward. Unless a settlement comes down the pipe later this year, it's expected the lawsuit will head to trial in early 2012.

The only other bit of information we know about Respawn's game comes from EA Games president Frank Gibeau, who told CVG back at E3 that Respawn was working on a sci-fi shooter.

What? Exactly.

My thoughts exactly, likely a dildo factory.

Alright. I'm going to guess a first person shooter where you aim down the sights, with a highly competitive multiplayer mode focused on player progression and customizable loadouts.

Oh good, I was worried the colors green and brown would not be represented.

Anything other than Call to Arms: Modern or Near-Future Combat would be fine thankyouverymuch.

Please be a western fantasy RPG. That would blow my mind.

It's another tie-in game to Transformers: Dark of the Moon. They made a dick robot for comic relief.

Looks like when you start up a HL game, could Respawn be making Ep. 3?

You play as an landscape architect.

That is near-sighted.

It's going to be a wrestling game.

On one hand, the arrogance of releasing this blurry image and expecting people to go apeshit over it really annoys me.

On the other hand, I'm betting it's Half Life 3.
