Infinity Ward: Two more defect to Respawn

Senior software engineer and designer latest to join EA-backed studio

Two more ex-Infinity Ward employees have defected to EA-backed West/Zampella studio, Respawn. As Cilla would say: surprise, surprise.

Senior software engineer, Chris Lambert and designer Brent McLeod are the latest ex-Modern Warfare developers to bailout and join the EA-backed studio, according to their LinkedIn profiles.

The news follows yesterday's report that five more members of the Modern Warfare studio have departed, brining the total exit count up to at least 18.

Activision recently admitted that more Infinity Ward employees will "probably" leave the studio and join Respawn.

"That's not over yet," said social media manager, Dan Amrich of the IW departures. "More people will probably go too, looking for new situations."

In its first official release, Respawn said it will focus on "creating state-of-the-art gaming experiences for global audiences."
