Well, can't say this wasn't coming. 1Up has details
on Jon Shiring, a programmer, has left Infinity Ward but so far he's just resigning. Timing's funny though since the news of former Infinity Ward leads creating a brand new studio just popped up yesterday, the same day as Shiiring's resignation.
I wonder how long it will be before we hear of news on Shiring joining Respawn Entertainment but I wouldn't be surprised if it happens sooner or later. Now, we can all sit back and watch to see how many more Infinity Ward folks leave the company and how many decide to join their former colleagues at the Respawn where EA will be a publisher.
The good news for Respawn is that whatever they make, they own as EA will just be publishing.
