When we last spoke to former Infinity Ward leaders Jason West and Vince Zampella, the duo promised a video game that will "make [gamers'] heads explode, and get them completely excited and give them a ton of fun."
As for what that game will be, and when our heads will explode, we still don't know, Zampella and West aren't the only ones who are expecting greatness, though. EA Partners GM David DeMartini expects big things too.
“We’re highly, highly confident of what they’re end product is going to be,” said DeMartini of Respawn's upcoming game, in an interview with gaming blog VG247. “They’ve told us that when they’ve got something great, they’re going to show us something.”
DeMartini went on to explain the relationship between Respawn and EA, an arrangement that I have to figure every developer in gaming would find amazing.
“Those guys have a long track record. It’s interesting in managing partners, especially really skilled and talented partners, because early on you’re kind of, ‘How much do we get involved? Do we call them? Do we not call them?’ We’re trying to give those guys a lot of room,” he said.
Sadly, we don't have any real details of what Respawn is making. No release date. No platforms. No genre. But the game is coming from the minds behind Modern Warfare, so even with such a dearth of hard facts, we're still following everything we can about this game. Sadly, it might be awhile:
“They’re doing it the right way," DeMartini said. "They had to get technology from the ground up. It’s definitely a start-up. Start-up companies take a lot of administration as well as creative energy to get those things started.”
