  • Infinity Ward and Respawn co-founder Jason West has joined Epic Games – report

West prevously served as CTO of inifity Ward before he later founded Respawn Entertainment with Vince Zampella.

West's hiring at Epic Games is being seen as a big deal for several reasons.

At the moment, those efforts primarily revolve around Fortnite.

West's new position at Epic comes just as quietly.

The fan thanked her for turning her onto Horizon and Gavankar replied with "Just wait until you see the sequel, you're gonna die". In the last hour potential anticipation has arrived, which seems to have revealed the existence of Horizon Zero Dawn 2 .


Jason West has been idle for the past few years since 2013 after he left gaming altogether.

A new report from The Game Awards creator and industry veteran Geoff Keighley suggests that Jason West has joined Epic Games. What that could be, however, is unknown. Keighley also states that West has already been working with Epic for a month.

Jason West has provided a sizeable contribution to the first-person shooter genre. 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.

West left Respawn before the original Titanfall had even been revealed. The latest game takes the far future setting of the franchise and uses that to create a unique, hero-based, spin on the battle royale genre. Epic Games does not have any officially announced games in development beyond their current work on Fortnite and the Epic Games store.
