Confirmed: Jason West Has Left Respawn

Posted on March 5, 2013 AT 11:18am

Yesterday, word spread of Jason West’s departure from Respawn Entertainment, the studio he co-founded with Vince Zampella in 2010 after the two left Infinity Ward. Today, Zampella confirmed West’s retirement with a post on the official Respawn website.

Jason has left Respawn to take care of some family issues. We have worked together on some amazing accomplishments over the years, starting with an early Segasoft project that never shipped. It is sad to see things come to an end, but there are times when change is best for growth, both personally and professionally. I wish Jason the best and send my best wishes to his family. Respawn continues to amaze me, the team here is resilient and talented. E3 will be therapeutic for us, as we finally get to start showing our work again. I know the team was excited about the response we got from just admitting we were going to attend.


It’s a shame West won’t be around for this year’s E3, when Respawn finally unveils whatever project they’ve been working on since 2011. Still, we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
