Ever since Infinity Ward was disbanded earlier this year, gamers have been anxious to see what the next project from Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella would be. We now know one thing: It will be multi-platform
After the announcement back in March that West and Zampella were no longer working for Infinity Ward or its parent Activision, the duo took Activision to court over ownership and licensing rights to the popular war simulation franchise. The lawsuit continues, though it appears that the twosome are working on moving towards their next project. Respawn Entertainment
was formed in April and so far has kept silent on what its first delivery would be.
A couple recent job listings on gaming classifieds site Gamasutra
indicate that the studio is looking for both an Audio Lead
and an Art Director
for ... a multi-platform product that works on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Its product will be based on new video game IP and will be funded through its publishing deal with Electronic Arts, one of the top publishers in the industry.
Respawn's publishing deal with EA will allow West and Zampella to own the franchise, something that Activision is trying to prevent them to do with the Call of Duty series.
