Respawn co-founder Jason West is the next Epic exclusive

West previously served as CTO of Infinity Ward before later founding Respawn with Vince Zampella after Activision fired the two.

Geoff Keighley has tweeted out some industry news.

At the moment, those efforts primarily revolve around Fortnite.

Whatever it is that West and the team at Epic Games are working on, they will all be hoping that the game can be as successful as Fortnite. West left Respawn back in 2013 to focus on his family but maybe re-entering the gaming industry once again. According to a recent Tweet from Geoff Keighley, Jason West (co-founder of both Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment) has been working for Epic for roughly a month now. What that could be, however, is unknown. While Epic has yet to announce West has joined the company, if Keighley said it's true, it must be true. It also created the popular Gears of War franchise and the Unreal Tournament series. While West was at Infinity Ward, the developer worked on Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The game recently received a patch that added a respawn system to the Battle Royale mode. Considering his pedigree, it's not hard to see why. Currently, Epic is encouraging more companies to bring their games to the Epic Games Store.
