Video game publishing giant Electronic Arts have bought out Respawn Entertainment for a cool sum of over $400 million. Respawn Entertainment was founded by Jason West and Vince Zampella both of whom previously founded Infinity Ward developers of Call of Duty before being fired by Activision and some dirty deeds done unto them. Their latest studio has been responsible for both Titanfall and Titanfall 2 published by EA. Zampella told VentureBeat that Respawn has "worked together [with EA] a long time from the inception of the studio," and that talk of an acquisition has come up previously. "The question was, where we are in the industry, how do we take the next step in making bigger, better games," he said. "We see the need for bigger resources to make bigger games."
