When I heard of the old Infinity Ward (IW) developers forming Respawn Entertainment I was both excited and a little sad. One of my favorite online multiplayer games, the Call of Duty series was probably going to see a degradation in quality with them leaving IW and if gamers followed those developers around then that could potentially fracture the players amongst platforms and games.

The money is going into a black hole which is funded by us, the taxpayers!
