Four more ex-Infinity Ward vets join Respawn Entertainment


Four more ex-staffers from Infinity Ward have now joined up the ranks of Respawn Entertainment and Jason West & Vince Zampella.

Preson Glenn, Zied Rieke, Chad Genier and Sean Slayback are the latest to join the upstart, with 16 now the total of people who have upped and left the Modern Warfare developer to Respawn.

The latest additions is a big blow to Activision, 24 hours after announcing a ten-year deal with Bungie on publishing its new IP.

Genier and Rieke were both senior and lead designers respectively, while Slayback was at Treyarch before joining Infinity Ward for development of Modern Warfare 2.

Earlier this week, two more ex-IW employees joined Respawn after four left the MW studio.

A collation of former Infinity Ward staff also announced this week it was suing Activision for unpaid bonuses to Modern Warfare 2.

This will continue to run and run.

Thanks, G4.
