Call Of Duty Creators Working On A ‘Sci-Fi-Oriented Shooter’

Respawn Entertainment, the new studio founded by Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella following their messy split from Activision, is of course working on a shooter. But what kind of shooter? A future shooter, that’s what.

The game is being published by EA, and at an event earlier today EA Games’ Frank Gibeau said that, alongside Insomniac’s Overstrike, Respawn’s title is one of two “sci-fi-oriented shooters” on the company’s books.

This isn’t too surprising; it’s long been rumoured that Infinity Ward (when Zampella and Young were still there) was working on a sci-fi shooter, so it must be great for the pair to finally get a chance to make it.

Gibeau says this will allow EA to finally compete directly with games like Halo and Gears of War.


  • I was reading earlier today on PC gamer about the possibility of a Mass effect 3 (EA) multiplayer (obviously sci-fi) mode.

    Obviously this is a big stretch, but if they were going to outsource the multiplayer to another studio, Respawn has the creds. They already outsourced weapon physics to Dice.

  • OMG, I watched Outlander just this morning. Spooky!

    Goodluck to Respawn; hope they put out something that puts a smile to gamers faces and causes Activision to lose sleep at night. 😉
