Infinity Ward/ Respawn Co-Founder joins Epic Games
Former Infinity Ward President and Respawn Entertainment Co-Founder, Jason West, has joined Epic Games, the studio behind Gears of War, Unreal Tournament and Fortnite, as well as the Unreal Engine. An Epic spokesperson says that West is currently “contributing to Epic’s development efforts.” The news was first reported by Game Awards founder and host Geoff Keighley on Twitter. West has been with the company for a month now.


Jason West, along with Vince Zampella and Grant Collier, founded Infinity Ward back in 2002 and the group would go on to create the Call of Duty series, as well as the Modern Warfare sub-series. West and Zampella were fired from the studio by parent company Activision in 2010 due to "breaches of contract and insubordination".  The two would later go and fund Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Titanfall and Apex Legends. Jason West eventually retired from Respawn in 2013 due to unknown personal family issues.
