Here’s something we missed in the launch of the new Respawn Entertainment website: a total of 40 former Infinity Ward staffers.

Gamefront produced the tally while scoping the website’s company page.

That’s three quarters of the 53 employees listed so far. The site doesn’t make any bones about it, happily referencing the chops of Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella.

Respawn also employs six former Sony Santa Monica staffers, which is not entirely surprising as all three studios are based in Los Angeles.

It’s not clear how many staff Infinity Ward had before it began bleeding off to ReSpawn, although a credits roll created by PC gamer over a year ago saw many significant, senior roles ending over the affair.

Respawn was formed by West and Zampella, founders of the Activision owned Infinity Ward, after the pair were fired for allegedly consorting with EA.
