E3 2012: West and Zampella Hope to Announce New Game Soon

CVG – speaking to the former Infinity Ward heads at E3 – have been told that Respawn Entertainment’s first game would “hopefully” be announced soon.S

West and Zampella were special guests at EA’s media briefing earning a mention from EA CEO John Riccitiello. This follows the recent out of court settlement relating to Modern Warfare 2 royalties and Zampella’s exit from Infinity Ward. He states that if the case had not been settled he would be “at the court house today.”

Asked if he thought the FPS market was in danger of saturation Zampella stated that “so long as those games are fun” this would not be an issue.

Respawn’s game has been outed by EA Games president Frank Gibeau as being a sci-fi shooter as suggested by heavily smeared screenshots. No other information is currently available.

It is possible that the game will see an announcement at Gamescom or the VGA’s later this year. However if it is an next generation title than the likelihood is an E3 2013 reveal possibly at the same time as the PS4 or Xbox 720.
