EA also agreed to pay up to $140 million more if Respawn meets certain performance milestones related to future titles.

As part of the announcement, EA confirmed that the three previously-announced projects are still in the works at Respawn, which are a third-person Star Wars game being overseen by God of War III director Stig Asmussen, a new entry in the Titanfall series, and an Oculus Rift-exclusive VR game now scheduled for release in 2019.

"Our longtime partnership is grounded in a shared desire to push the boundaries and deliver extraordinary and innovative new experiences for players around the world". "Together, we've brought this to life in the Titanfall franchise, and now with the Respawn team joining EA, we have exciting plans to accomplish even more fantastic things in the future".

EA has confirmed that they have acquired Respawn Entertainment, along with their Titanfall IP.

Respawn was created with help from EA when the developer's founders Vince Zampella and Jason West were fired from Activision.

Is the Stock Highly Volatile? NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)
The computer hardware maker reported $1.33 EPS for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.94 by $0.39. The Kentucky-based Kentucky Retirement System Insur Trust Fund has invested 0.42% in NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA ).

Titanfall was an enormous success for the studio, having sold upwards of four million copies on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One; an impressive feat considering that it was the first title for the new studio as well as one of the first major titles for Microsoft's new video game console. With Titanfall and Star Wars, EA has been a great development partner that supports us and doesn't interfere with our process for making games or studio culture.

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.

The deal may very well change the original EA-Respawn dynamic, which kicked off in 2010 as part of the "EA Partners" program. "This is a great next step for Respawn, EA, and our players".

EA's decision to buy Respawn reportedly came after competing with South Korean publisher Nexon - which published a mobile Titanfall game - had approached the developer with an offer.
