Respawn Co-founder Forms Mobile-gaming Studio

As reported by VentureBeat on Monday, April 28, Respawn Entertainment’s co-founder Vince Zampella and Larry Pacey, the former product head of casino slot machine maker WMS, have teamed up together to form a mobile-gaming startup studio named “Nuclear Division”.

In an interview with GamesBeat, VentureBeat’s sister website, both Zampella and Pacey detailed that they were forming Nuclear Division in order to test some new development ideas, presumably for mobile titles. Zampella added that he will continue his position as head of Respawn Entertainment, and his role with Nuclear Division is more that of an investor, an advisor and a board member.

It’s a device that I play on because I always have it with me, ” Zampella told GamesBeat. “ It always connected. You’re engaged with it. There’s something you can do with that. I’m not saying one is better than the other, in terms of console versus mobile. It’s a different gaming experience. Both interest me.

Zampella considered going down the mobile route as part of Respawn, but decided that the genre didn’t really fit the studio in the end. Nuclear Division is currently working on technology for a new platform as well as a couple of games that’ll be taking advantage of said technology. However, the newly formed studio isn’t detailing its games as of yet, but it will focus on opportunities to build up a community across multiple games.

Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall could have released on PlayStation Vita , according to a digital documentary. The game also recently received a massive patch update on Thursday, April 10, adding a new Private Match feature to the game’s multiplayer, among additional changes and fixes. Any further game modes added to Titanfall will be made available for free , and not as part of an DLC. The title’s first map pack DLC was released on Saturday, April 12, which introduces three new maps to Titanfall’s multiplayer roster.

The studio has also implemented its anti-cheat system after collecting data on suspected cheaters in Titanfall’s multiplayer. Titanfall 2 will not be a Microsoft exclusive title. Check out our Joshua Bruce’s review of Titanfall here .
