EA Has Acquired Titanfall Dev Respawn Entertainment
10 November, 2017, 01:26
The big news of the day for Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment is certainly that they are being acquired by EA. The two companies have worked together extensively in the past, as Electronic Arts published both Titanfall titles, and Respawn are now working on a Star Wars title. The second entry in the futuristic first-person shooter series, Titanfall 2, came out last fall for multiple platforms but didn't quite make sales waves, perhaps because EA released it smack in the middle of Call of Duty and the publisher's other big shooter, Battlefield.
This deal will apparently cost EA up to $315 million in cash and stock, plus a possible bonus of $140 million. "For fans, my message is we are still Respawn and we are going to make things better", said Zampella.
Mega-publisher EA has purchased a new studio-Respawn, the developer of Titanfall.
"We have worked together a long time from the inception of the studio", explained Zampella to GamesBeat.
"We've had success as an independent company but as we look to how we want to compete in the future, and the challenges that face us in a rapidly changing landscape, now is the time for us to combine forces with a global industry leader like EA".
In a blog post published to the Respawn website, Zampella stated that he plans to continue running Respawn in addition to his new work as a member of EA's studio leadership team.
Zampella has this to say to people who are anxious about what toll the acquisition might take on Respawn's games.
Early past year, EA announced that it had contracted Respawn to make a Star Wars action game, in addition to the Battlefront series and what was then planned as a Star Wars action-adventure from Visceral, which has since been canceled.
Whatever it is, we'll likely hear more about it soon with EA taking charge of Respawn.
