Respawn Entertainment co-founder Jason West has joined Epic Games according to a report.

Epic Games has been flexing its financial muscle fueled by the wildly successful Fortnite battle royale game. It was not clear whaat Jason West was set to do after leaving Respawn.

At Infinity Ward, West had a hands-on role through most of the Call of Duty series, including the WWII-themed originals and the first two Modern Warfare games, which helped to redefine modern shooters. This news comes from Gaming Journalist and Producer of The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley.


Former Infinity Ward president and co-founder of Respawn Entertainment, Jason West, announced his retirement from the studio he formed with fellow Infinity Ward founder Vince Zampella back in 2013.

Jason West was formerly co-founder of Respawn Entertainment, the company behind Titanfall and Apex Legends. Keighley also states that West has already been working with Epic for a month. This must be a big addition to the company in terms of game development. Even though Epic is now known for the mega-hit Fortnite, they'll surely continue to make more titles in the future, especially with how much revenue Fortnite has brought in for the company. However, now West may be working with Epic to create new games.
