For the folks at Respawn Entertainment, the creation of Titanfall was not motivated by getting back at Activision.
"To us it wasn’t about revenge. It was about making the best game possible," Respawn's Vince Zampella told IGN. "Honestly, I mean, Call of Duty is something that I’m proud of. I worked on it for many years, so it’s something that I’m really proud of. So to me it’s not about that at all. It really is about we’re going to make this game, it’s going to be really great. We have to make this the best we can make it. That was the focus."
Despite the rough breakup between Zampella and Activision, it sounds like the Respawn boss has put the past behind him and is dedicated to making the best FPS experience possible, regardless of the competition.
