Rumours have been flying around over the last couple of days stating that Jason West, co-founder of Respawn Entertainment, the company set up by himself and Vince Zampella after the duo quit Infinity Ward, leaving the Call of Duty franchise behind them, had left Respawn Entertainement.
Today it has been confirmed by Vince Zampella with a statement posted to the official Respawn Entertainment website. The statement reads:
“Jason has left Respawn to take care of some family issues. We have worked together on some amazing accomplishments over the years, starting with an early Segasoft project that never shipped. It is sad to see things come to an end, but there are times when change is best for growth, both personally and professionally. I wish Jason the best and send my best wishes to his family. Respawn continues to amaze me, the team here is resilient and talented. E3 will be therapeutic for us, as we finally get to start showing our work again. I know the team was excited about the response we got from just admitting we were going to attend.
No more details were given on the specifics, but at the end of the day, it’s none of our business what his family issues are. Still, it’s a shame that he’s had to leave his job, hopefully he’ll get back into the fray of things in the future, and more importantly, that his family issues aren’t too bad, whatever they may be.
