On April 12th, 2010, departed heads of Infinity Ward - Jason West and Vince Zampella - announced their new studio, Respawn Entertainment, with Electronic Arts providing the seed capital to start the company. Zampella will be assuming the role of General Manager and West as President.
They have a publishing deal with EA Partners, and EA will have the right to publish the company's first game, along with potential sequels and spin-offs. Respawn Entertainment will still own and maintain control of their intellectual property, however.
Co-founder Jason West left the company in March 2013 with Respawn stating that his departure was due to family issues.
On June 6, 2013, a leaked Game Informer article revealed Respawn's first title, Titanfall, a sci-fi mecha first person shooter for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Titanfall was officially revealed during Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference to much critical acclaim going as far as to win Game of the Show.
