Respawn will not unveil an FPS at E3 2012
Respawn Entertainment, the studio established by Infinity Ward co-founders Jason West and Vince Zampella, will not reveal their long-awaited FPS at E3 next month.
“Some of us will be present at E3, but we won’t be showing anything or doing any press related to the game,” says Respawn’s community boss Abbie Heppe.
The studio made up of ex-Call of Duty developers had previously teased a blurred image from the secret FPS onto their website (see below).
The studio’s first project has received plenty of hype and is set to take place in the future with EA president Frank Gibeau describing it as a “sci-fi shooter.” Respawn Entertainment is a partner studio of EA Games.
During a recent controversial court settlement, in which Activision claimed EA stole many ex-Call of Duty developers to form Respawn whilst they were still under contract, more details were revealed about the title.
According to reports by the L.A. Times: “Activision claimed the pair (West and Zampella) had discussed creating a science-fiction shooter intended to challenge the Halo franchise.”
The game is expected to be released on the next-generation of Microsoft and Sony consoles.
Will Respawn’s sci-fi shooter rival the Call of Duty and Halo franchises? Or does this latest delay of fresh details make it seem more like Duke Nukem Forever? Let us know in the comments section below.
