Starting to think whoever are in charge of EA are a bunch of homicidal maniacs, what with all the attempted franchise killings and all. Somebody better arrest them before they decide to make a Mario killer!

Well, with Activision out of the picture, they might actually make a bloody good game. And EA's release schedule sounds pretty well thought out. It's early days still, of course, but the initial prospects for this are pretty good.
Watch this, it had me in tears laughing:

Also, could people please tell me that they're from CVG in their friend requests, otherwise I won't accept them. Cheers.

*sigh* WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SCI-FI SHOOTER OR ANY SHOOTER FOR THAT MATTER. Christ your a new and fresh studio and im sure you could try and make your own prize unique game.

Firstly, InfinityWard... or Respawn has always been Shooter, its what they do. Similar to how NaughtyDog are Adventure, its what they've always done and do best.

So it'd be obvious for Respawn to do such a thing, and I agree with one of the above posters. Now the creative constraints is off this team, I am sure they will be knocking out a really impressive title. When your creatively challenged in a workspace such as the environment given by Activision, it is easy to get into doing the same thing -- These two guys wanted to turn it up with MW2, yet Activision was 'stick to what worked last time' so they had to.

Now that those overriding decisions are effectively out of it. We can see something special happening with Respawn.

Looking forward to it. If they can make it as awesome as MW1, it could compete with the aforementioned titles on the action side of things. Not sure they can create a universe as compelling (for me anyway) as Halo's though.

Spring 2013 it is then. Blimey, thats a long way off.

I cannot see it being before then, unless its late 2012. But thats MoH2 and CoD88 so thats very unoppurtunistic...

I agree...I hope they can create something as cool as Halo. I really don't want to invest in an XBox but they do have some really good non-PS3 games.

It sounds like this could be really good- and I think they are right with the 2year cycle, certainly shorter than that would be over-exposure and likely drop quality despite sounding good on paper.

Also, it does seem a shame when there is a gap then an overload of great games like happened at the end of 2008. I can see why you would want to try to find a good gap given the number of quality shooters around.
Bureaucrat Conrad, you are technically correct -- the best kind of correct.
