Respawn Website Officially Opens With Blurry Teaser Image
Written By
View author's profile

Formed by ex-Infinity Ward founders and Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella, Respawn Entertainment has now opened its brand-new website, with its first game currently in development and set to be published by EA Partners.

The site is also home to an incredibly blurry teaser image of what we can only assume is Respawn's upcoming project, which is apparently a sci-fi title, according to EA Games boss man Frank Gibeau. For reasons we can't quite fathom, it looks slightly more fantasy-flavoured to us. We're not sure how we've gathered that from the bleary picture below.

Head on over to the shiny new Respawn Entertainment website to take a look at what's going on at the studio and see what - if anything - you can discern from the teaser-tastic image.

don't get your hopes up, most of the things EA get there hands on end up becoming rushed. dragon age 2 is a good example, they used up too much disk space for the graphics and left barley anything for maps and locations, but they pushed it out anyway. why didn't they use another disk like mass effect 2? they money grab!

the fantasy idea is coming from all the green wich i assume is grass, and the dark spots in the background wich look like mountains.
Also on the left front, it looks like some middleage themed tower.
building in the middle look like a factory tho, with black smoke coming from a chimney... we'll have to wait and see when it's deblurrified i guess, and i'll probally be wrong on all accounts xD

D4RK V1C3 - I agree 100% with your observation. It looks like that, however, perhaps instead of being a teaser, its referencing something instead of being from a game their designing.

I know one thing for sure; if it's being published by EA, dont expect an instruction manual.

@4 Dude, Mass Effect is published by EA as well. Horrible example subject. Try Medal of Honor. That's a better game to dis on. Published by EA, made to make money, not fans. But I'm no EA hater. I love Mass Effect, Rock Band, FIFA, Madden (04-08), LOTR: BFME, Family Game Night, Battlefield, Need for Speed, SSX and others. They make good games, and yes, they want our money. Just like every other company out there. If you want to hate a publisher for rushing games, hate Activision. They're the ones who want to pump out CoD games every year, Guitar Hero games every 6 months, and lets not forget the Tony Hawk series they destroyed. Sure, EA pumps out sports games, but really, who takes those seriously? Publishers aside, its the developer you should really look at. Bioware made Dragon Age and Mass Effect. So you don't like DA2. BIG DEAL. One game gone awry for you. Bioware is a great company because they don't make bad games continuously (imo, they don't have any bad games). No one can judge Respawn until they've made a game, and I for one, am very excited to see how their debut turns out.

Kinda looks like an old harbor with a destroyed building on the left, or an abandon warehouse of some sort. o.O

The building in the middle of the screen is definitely a hanger, with a corrugated metal roof. This could be an abandoned airport of some kind. Post-apocalyptic fits the "sci-fi" theme, so it could be a destroyed airport, too.

@14 ???? mass effect 2 was a bad example? my point was that bioware makes both games, EA publish both games but they gave ME2 two disks for graphics and content were as DA2 they didn't because using two disks costs more so they didn't bother, compromising the quality of the game to make some quick cash. which comes back to point of don't get your hopes up because EA always find a way to save money thus spoiling your experience of the game.
i don't understand why people don't get it, when you buy a car or a computer you expect it to work and not fall apart. you expect it to be made to a certain quality why should games be any different?

And the great Loch Ness surfaces! maybe it's an 8bit edutainment title, where you have to guide a submarine into the great depths of the ocean to find a giant deep sea monster - the KRAKEN, i mean LOCH NESS! wait where was I?

I'm really hoping they can create something special without being shackled to the COD franchise. Most of the talent left IW during the split, so there's a good chance this will be a great game. Come on Respawn and EA, show Activision how it's done.

with a tower in the middle...anyone else think it might be the rumored game based off of Stephen king's the dark tower? I never read it, so I have no idea if thats what it would look like, but its all I can think of.

Mountains, docks, lake behind it, or it looks like a factory of some sort.

Dont know how this is sci-fi.

Im thinking atm it might be like a starship trooper type thing.

Like bug/alien hunting or something.

Dont know why, dont ask! :p XD

Futuristsic LOTR!1!!!111!1!1oneoneoneoneone! It's the towers!1!!!111!1!1oneoneoneoneone!

...but seriously. IW had a great track record, up until MW2 which was rushed and unpatched due to the legal fiasco. If EA actually gives them time to work (unlike Activision) is has the possibility of being a great game.

I am somewhat pretty sure this looks like a possible Tiberium landscape. I'll wait and see if Respawn will prove me wrong though.

It'll probably be complete shit. Infinity Ward is a one trick pony, all about the money and not enough about the game, company.

@ 4. Agreed especially when they destroyed Zampella and West years ago at the start of Medal of Honor's popularity, which means history will repeat itself.

@ 11. EA has way too many of those franchises.

@ 14. EA should be dissed on ME because they left the RPG roots to turn it into a Shooter.

@ 16. Its part of the whole package while they're still selling game at full price, which is a lie on the going green thing.

@ 18. That would be nice if Tiberium came back while I'm sure hell would freeze over before that happen.

@ 29. That wouldn't happen because most of the Respawn crew piggy backed off of the real talent in IW, which that belongs to the grunts.

@ 32. MW2 still wasn't a bad game while it was more playable and enjoyable then MoH's MP even with those glitches in it.

Activision gave them enough time while the management of Zampella and West weren't agreeing with Activision especially when they were double dealing with EA at that time.

@ 38. Yep thats the description for Zampella and West.

Looks VERY interesting, but here's what i see:

The top middle between two mountains look similar to some type of alien dropship of some sort kinda looks like clouds at first glance. There's an old wrecked worn out building to the left of the screen. And some type of farm looking house in the middle of the picture and the house has something on its roof, cant really tell what it is though. Also there's some type of poles around the area of the farm house, besides that i see nothing but grass.

But thats all i can see.

First thought I had was two towers oddly enought. Maybe sci fi in fantasy world? That could sell if done right and would be finally something fresh:-)
