Activision speaks out about Respawn Entertainment announcement
As we reported earlier, ex Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West have started up a new studio named Respawn Entertainment and have partnered with Activision’s main rivals Electronic Arts.
So – how has Activision taken the news? Break ups are always tough, especially when multi million dollar franchises are involved.
Unsurprisingly they haven’t exactly been flattering towards their former employees.
An Activison spokesperson had the following to say;
“This agreement comes as no surprise to Activision given the myriad of improper activities detailed in the cross-complaint filed on Friday against Jason West and Vince Zampella. We look forward to continuing to work with Infinity Ward’s deep bench of proven talent on exciting new projects.”
Yeah, so take that! Although it’s nice to hear that Activision actually recognises the talent that resides within Infinity Ward.
