One of the companies I worked for was bought out by a multi billion company. I hope they do not think that working for larger company is better now especially what they did to Visceral Games

You will have to deal with random chance of getting the titan you want ?

Considering they threw TItanfall 2 under the bus last year by releasing a week after Battlefield 1 and a week before COD. That doesn't bode well for the future of that franchise

It's too bad that EA can't actually make more people aware that the people who run Respawn are the people who actually made Call of Duty what it is.

When EA acquires your company, it's time to start looking for a new job. It only took them four years from 2007 to the release of Dragon Age 2 in 2011 to run BioWare into the ground. EA is a deplorable company with a deplorable track record. Don't expect anything but a terrible working environment and predatory consumer practices.

I'm sure the Respawn people think EA is saintly compared to how they were treated by Activision.

Microsoft probably should have made a move to buy them though
