For Respawn Entertainment this news must be good for them knowing that the higher ups at EA have taken notice of their performance and sees promise in the company.
Currently Respawn Entertainment have three games in development including a new entry in the Titanfall franchise, a new Star Wars game and a VR gaming experience.
