EA move 'daunting and exciting' - Zampella

Infinity Ward co-founder discusses new partnership

Sacked Infinity Ward co-founder, Vince Zampella has called both his and Jason West's move to EA Partners "daunting and exciting".

Speaking in an interview with LA Times after this morning's announcement, Zampella said: "This is a total reset. We're starting again from ground zero. It's daunting and exciting."

The ex-Call of Duty boss, who was fired and removed from the Infinity Ward premises earlier this year, wouldn't discuss his new studio, Respawn's new game, but said he expected it to be "huge, summer blockbuster" scale.

He added that they would consider turning their games into films, comic books and other media.

"We have learned the hard way," said Zampella, "that the best way to ensure the integrity and quality of your work and make sure the fans get what they deserve is to own the intellectual property."

EA Partners boss, Frank Gibeau called the pairs' arrival back at EA 'ironic'.
