Respawn Entertainment co-founder Jason West has joined Epic Games according to a report.
Epic Games has hired Jason West, who co-founded Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment with Vince Zampella.
This is according to a tweet from Geoff Keighley. While Epic has yet to announce West has joined the company, if Keighley said it’s true, it must be true. Still, take it as unconfirmed until official word comes out of Cary, North Carolina.
According to Keighley, West has been at the firm for at least a month.
