EA Has Acquired Titanfall Dev Respawn Entertainment

EA Has Acquired Titanfall Dev Respawn Entertainment”

Although Respawn Entertainment, the developer responsible for the Titanfall series, has worked exclusively with Electronic Arts since its inception, it wasn't actually owned by EA. EA announced the purchase, as well as a new, in-development Titanfall game, in a press release.

EA stated that Respawn has "multiple projects now in development", including the already announced Star Wars game, and "a new title in the Titanfall franchise". "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".

In addition to the afore-mentioned $151 million in cash up front, EA has agreed to pay "up to $164 million in long-term equity in the form of restricted stock units to employees, which will vest over four years", as well as more cash (up to a maximum of $140 million) based on "achievement of certain performance milestones, relating to the development of future titles" through 2022.

Respawn will join EA's Worldwide Studios organization, a global creative collective of leading game development studios bringing to life an unmatched portfolio of top games and services across all major platforms.

Whatever it is, we'll likely hear more about it soon with EA taking charge of Respawn.

In a letter posted to the Respawn website, Zampella was a bit more candid about the acquisition. Though West eventually left the studio, Zampella has remained a lead figure for the Titanfall games, which have been published by EA. "While it wasn't necessary, going with EA made a lot of sense", he wrote. The question was, where we are in the industry, how do we take the next step in making bigger, better games. "We've been talking closely with the leadership at EA and we share their values and vision for the future of being a developer-focused company that puts the players first".

Founded in 2010 by Call of Duty designers Jason Ward and Vince Zampella, Respawn won hearts with its first game, Titanfall, released in 2014 as an Xbox exclusive. It seems that Respawn Entertainment is already working on a brand new Titanfall game.
