Respawn Entertainment’s poached two more ex-Infinity Ward staffers to its studio, its been discovered. They really should make some sort of connected tunnel between the two developers.

Senior software engineer Chris Lambert and designer Brent McLeod are the latest to link up with former bosses Vince Zampella and Jason West at the upstart, according to their LinkedIn profiles.

With last week’s addition of eight people, plus the latest two, and Zampella and West, this now makes the total tally at the studio already at 12. And that’s not including those who may have joined up outside of the Modern Warfare developer.

It comes hours after it was discovered that three more IWers left the studio. It’s unknown so far what their intentions will be.

As for Respawn, its currently planning for its first game, which will be published under EA Partners.
