Infinity Ward and Respawn co-founder Jason West has joined Epic Games – report

West's hiring at Epic Games is being seen as a big deal for several reasons.

Respawn Entertainment co-founder Jason West has joined Epic Games according to a report. That franchise could be a battle royale game like Fortnite; but, the more likely option is that West is working on a completely different style of game. The news comes from long-time journalist Geoff Keighley who says West has been working with Epic for a month now on "game development efforts". Geoff Keighley broke the news via Twitter. Earlier he was the co-founder and president of most famous Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward.
