Jason West has been reportedly working with Epic Games and will be developing new games for the company

Now, Keighley's tweet states that Jason West has joined Epic Games to work on game development efforts at the studio.

Epic Games has just bolstered its staff with an industry great. West left Respawn back in 2013 to focus on his family but maybe re-entering the gaming industry once again.

Epic Games has allegedly hired Jason West, co-founder of Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment, to work on game development. What that could be, however, is unknown.

Jason West has provided a sizeable contribution to the first-person shooter genre.

West left the company not long after he and Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella settled their lawsuit with Activision. He says that West has been working at Epic's offices for "about a month". Epic Games' Fortnite has more than 200 million players on PC, consoles, and mobile devices, and in 2018, it made $2.4 billion from sales of cosmetics and its battle pass. The latest game takes the far future setting of the franchise and uses that to create a unique, hero-based, spin on the battle royale genre. Considering his pedigree, it's not hard to see why.

While we haven't heard directly from Epic Games about this matter (and we might not for some time) the thought of West now working with the company is an interesting one.
