The Weekend Chat: The Future of Titanfall

Electronic Arts buys Respawn for more than $400 million, new Titanfall in the works

They then went on to create Respawn Entertainment together, and the series Titanfall: published by Electronic Arts (EA), it took numerous design choices of a modern Call of Duty game, and added some flair in the form of giant robots.

According to a press release, EA will pay $151 million in cash and another $164 million in "long-term equity in the form of restricted stock units to employees".

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.

Titanfall was released in 2014, with Titanfall 2 released two years later.

"Our longtime partnership is grounded in a shared desire to push the boundaries and deliver extraordinary and innovative new experiences for players around the world", EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a statement. A cynical view of the acquisition would be that EA is a place where game studios go to die.

Palace boss Hodgson opens up on links to Jack Wilshere
I work with Dougie Freedman and we talk about potential players, and Jack Wilshere's name has never been mentioned in this room. Southgate said his decision to omit Wilshere was because he didn't think the 25-year-old was being used in his best position.

Respawn Entertainment was initially founded by former Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West in 2010. News of the Respawn Star Wars video game comes on the heels of a recent announcement by EA that it had canceled an in-development high-profile game from its Visceral studios.

"While it wasn't necessary, going with EA made a lot of sense", he explains in a blog post.

"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".

Zampella says he will continue to run things at Respawn and will become a part of the leadership team at EA. A report from Kotaku sheds light on why EA made the move: as a response to another game publisher, Korea's Nexon, making a formal bid to buy Respawn outright.
