Respawn Entertainment is an American video game development studio founded by Vince Zampella and Jason West in 2010.  Following the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, behind-the-scenes actions took place at Activision, and after several lawsuits, Vince Zampella and Jason West were fired for reasons listed as "breach of contract", etc. Not willing to give up, they created a splinter group with many other former Activision employees, and named it Respawn Entertainment. Titanfall was the first game developed by Respawn, and was followed up in 2016 by its sequel, Titanfall 2.

Respawn Entertainment employs three current development teams, each responsible for development on a different project. These include the development of future Titanfall games, the Star Wars game Jedi: Fallen Order[1][2] and a VR project for the Oculus Rift.

In November of 2017, the studio announced that it was acquired by Electronic Arts[3], though this would not affect the games currently in development. In November 2018, Electronic Announced that Respawn has multiple games slated for release in late 2019.[4]
