News: The publisher of the Titanfall series has now officially added Respawn to their list of studios.


Respawn is now officially a part of Electronic Arts. Everyone knows Respawn as the studio behind the Titanfall series but before that a good number of people, including the founders, helped launch Infinity Ward and the Call of Duty series with Activision. They had a bad break up with Activision though which is what lead to them leaving and starting up Respawn. With that being the case it is a bit of surprise that that they would go down this route once again instead of remaining independent, even though they have only really done for EA anyways.

Vince Zampella, one of the founders of Respawn, wrote a letter to the community which you can see below:

”Today we announced that Respawn will be joining EA.

We started Respawn with the goal to create a studio with some of the best talent in the industry and be the #1 developer of innovative games in the world. We’ve had success as an independent company but as we look to how we want to compete in the future, and the challenges that face us in a rapidly changing landscape, now is the time for us to combine forces with a global industry leader like EA.

While it wasn’t necessary, going with EA made a lot of sense. With Titanfall and Star Wars, EA has been a great development partner that supports us and doesn’t interfere with our process for making games or studio culture. EA will provide us with more resources, access to new technologies, and expertise that we can tap into to that will help us make better games, and Respawn will retain the same creative freedom and culture we’ve always had. We’ve been talking closely with the leadership at EA and we share their values and vision for the future of being a developer-focused company that puts the players first.

I will still be running things at Respawn and will also be a part of the studio leadership team at EA. There will be no layoffs or major organization changes within Respawn. All games currently in development are continuing as planned.

This is a great next step for Respawn, EA, and our players. Joining with EA will give us the resources and support we need to grow and have long term success while still keeping our culture and creative freedom. We believe this is an opportunity to achieve more together through the unique strengths we each bring to the table.”

Vince answers some of the more pressing questions people will have such as whether this will have any effect on Titanfall, why they chose to go with EA and more. You can check that out by visiting Respawn’s website.

What do you think of Respawn officially joining EA? Is this a good move or is it something that will ultimately backfire? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
