Respawn planning “big time announcement” at E3

See them hills? Run. Respawn Entertainment is set to make a massive “big time announcement” at E3 next week.

At least, that’s according to a status update on the group page of Respawn founders Jason West and Vince Zampella on Facebook. It reads:

“big time announcement at E3 next week. stay tuned, kiddies!”

This may be a change of tune compared to what was said by EA Partners boss David DeMartini a couple of weeks back on if we’ll see anything by the upstart at the LA mega-event next week.

“I don’t think we’re going to see anything from them at E3,” he told VG247 following his label’s announcement in signing Insomniac Games to its first multi-plat title, “but everything’s going great at Respawn. I think they just had a big furniture delivery…”

Respawn was founded by Zampella and West following their dismissals as studio heads of Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward by Activision for “insubordination”.

EA Partners were signed to publish and distribute its first title, with the dev keeping all control of whatever IP it creates.

Whatever’s going to be announced next week will almost certainly come at EA’s E3 presser. Get details on that here.
