Respawn Entertainment has confirmed Jason West’s departure from the company by releasing a short and brief statement on their website. West was best known for being associated with creating one of the world’s most loved franchises – Call of Duty, and the infamous departure from Infinity Ward a few years ago.
Posted by Vince Campella of Respawn Ent’:
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.
