Imagine Dice & Respwan team up in the future to make a game!

Honestly I want Dice to stick to their own thing....I mean look at Medal of Honor. The Single Player had great mechanics and was a fantastic game. Online was sub par and forgotten about because DICE didn't care about it.

DICE has a way of doing things, and that way of doing things shines on everything they "help" with. MOH still felt like Battlefield.

I rather see Respawn do something great on their own. and let Danger Close create something entirely different too. Then let DICE make Battlefield. At the end of the day EA and the fans get 3 ENTIRELY different games.

FPS games are one of my favorite genres! They have some of the more intense multiplayers.

Believe me, I'm just as fed up of FPS games as you are (I wasn't even a fan of the genre to begin with), but it really looks like this is shaping up to be an all-star team. I have high expectations that if anyone can surprise us it's them.

Don't like FPS then move on.

...I hope the hell not!

DICE is cool being left alone and Respawn is cool doing their own thing.

Only collaboration I could see is in the tricks and trade of pushing PC tech but seems like DICE has that very well covered.

If they both incorporated their ideasinto one game, it would be BEYOND EPIC. It wouldn't have to affect Battlefield at all. It could be something new and innovative!

This article is mis-representing things. In the current article they state:

"At last count it appeared that around 30 ex-Activision developers had moved over to the EA-allied studio, but now the number has seemingly risen ever higher."

Yet, in their very own source from their very own website:

"Following West and Zampellla's removal from Infinity Ward, 46 staff left the Modern Warfare creator - 38 of whom have now declared that they have signed with Respawn."

Around 30, suggest below 35. Furthermore wikipedia states:

"As of July 10, 2010, 38 of the 46 Infinity Ward employees who resigned from that studio following the firings of West and Zampella revealed through their LinkedIn and Facebook profiles that they had signed on with Respawn Entertainment"

This is old news. So it seems Respawn gained two more employees (at a minimum), whopdi doo. Why do we get stories like this anyhow? The old Infinity Ward is no longer there with the head and majority of team already left.

When this many staff members leave a company, you know something must of been up. It makes me believe more of what west/zampella said is true (acti lawsuit)
