Infinity Ward legend Jason West apparently now works for Epic Games

Jason West

Today it was revealed that Jason West, the co-founder of Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment, has been hired by Epic Games. It was not clear whaat Jason West was set to do after leaving Respawn. There they created the Titanfall series of shooters for EA. Earlier he was the co-founder and president of most famous Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward. But now West is back, and he's joined forces with billion-dollar juggernaut Epic Games.

It seems Epic Games could have landed a rather big new name recently if a new report is to be believed. Before co-founding Infinity Ward alongside Vince Zampella and Grant Collier, West had been part of the team that worked on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault at 2015, Inc. for Electronic Arts. West left Zampella in charge of Respawn in 2013, and it was not made clear where his next work would be.

Jason West was one of the original founders of Infinity Ward and one of the creators of Call of Duty franchise.

It's not clear if Jason West is working directly on Fortnite at Epic Games as of now. Epic Games does not have any officially announced games in development beyond their current work on Fortnite and the Epic Games store. However, West also has experience in making massively popular games and that could give Epic Games an advantage.
