Respawn hires Star Wars artist for its new title

Respawn Entertainment has hired a Iain McCaig, a concept artist behind such famous figures as Darth Maul and Queen Amidala along with characters in three James Bond games. He was part of the art design team for The Secret of Monkey Island.

Speaking with Develop, McCaig said that working with Respawn has been one of “the most exhilarating experiences I’ve ever had in my career”.

“Whether it’s military games or things set in space, it doesn’t matter, my huge burning passion is in designing people,” he added.

In an interview the site promises will be published soon, McCaig said that Respawn approached him for the game its currently working on, and he “simply couldn’t turn this offer down”.

Respawn Entertainment, as you all know by now, was formed in March last year by former Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella.

There's still no word on what exactlty the fellas are working on for EA at the moment, but whatever it is, it won't be announced at E3.

According to a tweet from the developers: "For those asking, Respawn won’t be making any announcements at E3 this year. We will be wandering the floor though!"

Hopefully, more will be revealed soon, and the Ian McCraig news is a nice start.
