He also went on to comment on how signing Vince Zampella and Jason West, former developers at Infinity Ward who were shown the door by Activision, helped them get back into the groove of developing:
"Most people would say you stuck it to Activision. People who look at Vince and Jason think, oh, you know, a couple of guys, highly successful, how much trauma could they be going through? They got fired by Activision."Sounds like the first game from Respawn Entertainment will come when it’s good and ready, but it is not guaranteed that it will be an FPS just yet. Would you like the guys at Respawn to make a new FPS or would you like to see if their talents can be extended into other genres? Express your opinions in the comments below.
"The thing that happened with Jason and Vince was not great for the industry because they got fired. But them landing with us and having an opportunity to build a team and start from scratch is great for them."
