New Titanfall Game Coming from Respawn
The second entry in the futuristic first-person shooter series, Titanfall 2, came out last fall for multiple platforms but didn't quite make sales waves, perhaps because EA released it smack in the middle of Call of Duty and the publisher's other big shooter, Battlefield. He revealed that the deal is worth up to $455 million dollars if Respawn is able to hit incentive goals.
The big news of the day for Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment is certainly that they are being acquired by EA.
This deal will apparently cost EA up to $315 million in cash and stock, plus a possible bonus of $140 million.
EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that the Titanfall franchise embodies the publisher's goal of delivering "extraordinary and innovative new experiences", and that "with the Respawn team joining EA, we have exciting plans to accomplish even more unbelievable things in the future".
Respawn CEO Vince Zameplla told GamesBeat in an interview, "We have worked together a long time from the inception of the studio". EA will provide us with more resources, access to new technologies, and expertise that we can tap into to that will help us make better games, and Respawn will retain the same creative freedom and culture we've always had. Will the their Star Wars game possess the same fun and frantic single player campaign that they pulled off with Titanfall 2? "This is a great next step for Respawn, EA, and our players".
Zampella has also stated there will be no layoffs or major organisational changes as part of the merger. There's no word yet on when we should expect to see Titanfall 3, but given EA's output it seems inevitable that we'll be looking at swifter turnarounds for the series from this point on.

He hopes this and future studies will call attention to the impact of inconsistent cannabis product labelling. Selling these oils without oversight, there is no way to know what is actually in the bottle.
