  • Epic Games reportedly hires Jason West co-founder of Respawn

A new report from The Game Awards creator and industry veteran Geoff Keighley suggests that Jason West has joined Epic Games. That franchise could be a battle royale game like Fortnite; but, the more likely option is that West is working on a completely different style of game. West was also at Respawn for part of Titanfall's development. There they created the Titanfall series of shooters for EA. While West was at Infinity Ward, the developer worked on Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Former Infinity Ward president and co-founder of Respawn Entertainment, Jason West, announced his retirement from the studio he formed with fellow Infinity Ward founder Vince Zampella back in 2013. The information was supplied by a tweet made by veteran gaming journalist Geoff Keighley.

Epic Games has just bolstered its staff with an industry great.


After a falling out with Activision, West and Zampella founded Respawn Entertainment. Fans are very interested in seeing what West and the creative minds at Epic Games could work on together.

While much of the current news around Epic understandably focuses on Fortnite and the Epic Store, there's still a development studio there that is, presumably, working on original projects.
