Electronic Arts is set to add another studio to its stable, with Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment joining its ranks. Nevertheless, the deal will see EA pay over USD$300 million in cash and shares, and up to an additional $140 million in performance bonuses.
"We started Respawn with the goal to create a studio with some of the best talent in the industry, and to be a top developer of innovative games", said Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment in a press release.
While some details of the acquisition are still unclear, it does make reference to Titanfall 3 - a game which hasn't been announced yet.
EA weren't the only publisher interested in Respawn: South Korean publisher Nexon, who published Lawbreakers earlier in the year and the Titanfall mobile game, were frontrunners before being matched by EA, who had a 30-day window to submit a bid. Respawn has a good pedigree too, it was founded by Call Of Duty veterans Jason West and Vince Zampella.

Do you think Respawn and their image of the franchise will change much, now that they're in the EA family? "We felt that now was the time to join an industry leader that brings the resources and support we need for long-term success, while still keeping our culture and creative freedom". EA has been a great partner over the years with Titanfall and Titanfall 2, and we're excited to combine our strengths.
In a blog post published to the Respawn website, Zampella stated that he plans to continue running Respawn in addition to his new work as a member of EA's studio leadership team. EA recently shuttered Dead Space developer Visceral Games (formerly known as EA Redwood Shores) and is now in the process of reworking the game from being an action-adventure single-player title to something akin to DICE's Battlefront series, with a potential multiplayer component and microtransactions to profit from.
