Epic Games Has Reportedly Hired Infinity Ward Co-Founder Jason West

But now West is back, and he's joined forces with billion-dollar juggernaut Epic Games.

According to The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley, Epic Games has hired games industry veteran Jason West as part of its game development efforts. Fans are very interested in seeing what West and the creative minds at Epic Games could work on together.

Jason West was one of the original founders of Infinity Ward and one of the creators of Call of Duty franchise. West's departure from Respawn six years ago was down to "family issues", and the dev hasn't worked in games since. Still, take it as unconfirmed until official word comes out of Cary, North Carolina. It was not clear whaat Jason West was set to do after leaving Respawn. However, there has been no confirmation from Epic Games regarding what kind of work West has been, and will be, doing for them.

It seems Epic Games could have landed a rather big new name recently if a new report is to be believed. Even though Epic is now known for the mega-hit Fortnite, they'll surely continue to make more titles in the future, especially with how much revenue Fortnite has brought in for the company. Epic will continue to make more games in the future, but with West tagging along, who knows what'll come out next?
