Respawn to again show nothing at E3

Surprising revelation from the studio

As the drama with West/Zampella continues to play out with Activision, the business of making and publishing games continues with the West/Zampella-led Respawn Entertainment and publisher Activision.

Many fans of West/Zampella had been looking forward to (what was rumored to be the first peek) at what has been in development at Respawn, but instead we heard that the developer is not going to be showing anything or doing any press related to the new title that is in development.

While Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe confirms that Respawn will have boots on the ground at E3, none of what these folks will be doing will be related to the new title that is in development. Our take is that the news is pretty surprising, and we have a hard time believing that not giving gamers a glimpse of what Respawn is working on is a mistake. We have to believe that Respawn needs to stay relevant, and not knowing what the developer is working on can’t last forever.

While sources confirm to us that development continues on whatever they are working on, little is known beyond the fact that it is an FPS title and that it takes place in the future. One theory that we keep hearing over and over again is that Respawn can’t yet announce anything because what they are working on is for the next generation of consoles beyond the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3; and with those having yet to be officially announced, Respawn has nothing it can talk about. We view it as an interesting theory, but only time will prove if it is true or not.
