Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats.

  • Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home is slated to come out on "consoles." The latest blog entry from The Fullbright Company wasn't too specific on which consoles they meant, but I'm going to assume something with "Xbox" and/or "PlayStation" in the name. I know, call me crazy.


    Midnight City is to thank for the console version of this game that seems to have really divided the gamers of the world on whether or not it's good. Both teams plan to release more specific details on this "console" release later on down the road....

  • Most of Titanfall's 50GB Install Size is Taken Up by Localized Language Audio Files

    Allegedly, most of the 50GB install size for Titanfall is due to almost 35GB of audio files. For some unknown reason, Respawn and EA have decided to include every localized language pack into one install. That means that no matter what language you speak, you will have every language included in your download and install of the game.

    This comes from a user on the Escapist forums. I do not have the game myself and cannot verify these claims but he did provide a couple of images as proof. The first is seen above from the unpacking process. The second one, below, shows the language directory.
