EA has announced the formation of Respawn Entertainment, a brand new development studio headed up by ex-Infinity Ward founders Jason West and Vince Zampella.

The newly formed studio is currently in the process of assembling a crack team of designers, artists and engineers before starting work on new projects for EA.

"Respawn Entertainment marks a fresh start for Jason and me," said Vince Zampella, now General Manager of Respawn. "For the past decade we led a great development team and poured our hearts into creating an epic game franchise. We’re very proud of what we built – and proud that so many millions of fans enjoyed those games. Today we hope to do it all over again - open a new studio, hire a great team, and create brand new games with a new partner, EA."

No prizes for guessing what the franchise in question is. West and Zampella will now set to work in creating new IPs to be published and distributed by EA, leaving Modern Warfare behind.

"We’re excited," added Respawn President, Jason West. "Now that the team is in control of the games and brands, we can ensure that the fans are treated as well as they deserve."

The CoD creators are still engaged in a lawsuit with Activision over unpaid royalties after they were fired for "insubordination".
