In a meeting at E3 today, EA Games label president Frank Gibeau may have revealed a little about the super-secret title that Respawn Entertainment is developing. His remarks could be taken to mean Respawn is working on a sci-fi oriented shooter meant to compete with game franchises like Halo and Gears of War.

Take this with a grain of internet salt(tm), as Gibeau's remarks are a bit ambiguous. He's quoted thusly

"Titles like Respawn - and I think the Insomniac title is a little bit more of an action game than a pure shooter - we'll sprinkle those in where we see opportunistic gaps, either in a release schedule or in a genre standpoint." He added: "Those typically are more sci-fi oriented shooters, where as the Medal of Honor and Battlefield brands are obviously more modern military oriented."

So read that as you will. But here's another piece of evidence: Respawn, the development company founded by Vince Zampella and Jason West, whose old company Infinity Ward was the creator of Modern Warfare, recently hired Iain McCaig, an artist best known for creating the iconic character designs in the most-recent trilogy of Star Wars movies. If I were creating a sci-fi shooter to compete with Halo, I'd hire McCraig. His art is awesome, and his name has cachet.
