Respawn and Infinity Ward Co-Founder Jason West Allegedly Hired by Epic Games

Epic Games has allegedly hired Jason West, co-founder of Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment, to work on game development.

The news was shared by games industry veteran Geoff Keighley on Twitter, who claims Epic hired West quietly to aid their game development efforts. He says that West has been working at Epic’s offices for “about a month”.

At current Epic Games have offered no announcement regarding hiring West. However, Keighley is one of the most well-connected people in the games industry, and so his Tweet should not be immediately dismissed.
