Respawn Entertainment Launched a Video on Their 10th Anniversary
On May 2020, the Respawn Entertainment studio turns 10 years old. To celebrate this event, the team, which is now the part of Electronic Arts, presented a thematic video in which they remembered their main accomplishments and, of course, thanked their fans.
In the presented video, the developers brought a cutting of the gameplay from all their games. It included the 2014 network action movie Titanfall, the 2016 shooter Titanfall 2, the actively developing royal battle Apex Legends, last year’s action movie Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and even the upcoming VR shooter Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond.
Respawn Entertainment was founded by former Infinity Ward developers President Jason West and CEO Vince Zampella. It happened just a month after the March 2010 conflict between Activision and Infinity Ward. Most of the new company’s employees were colleagues of Activision’s founders. And by June 2011, the company already had 40 former employees of Infinity Ward. And on November 9, 2017, the studio became a part of Electronic Arts.
The Titanfall series, as well as Apex Legends, was created on a modified Source engine from Valve. And in projects such as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, the studio began to use the Unreal Engine 4 engine, despite the fact that most internal EA studios usually work with DICE Frostbite.
Many fans of Titanfall are upset that the studio is now focused on the royal battle network and other projects, postponing the work on Titanfall 3. However, in a recent IGN interview, Mr. Zampella again said that the studio did not forget about its roots and wants to resurrect Titanfall, although so far it is impossible to say anything definite about it.
