Jason West has indeed left Respawn Entertainment.
MCV reported yesterday that the Call of Duty co-creator was understood to have left the studio as long ago as last May.
“Jason has left Respawn to take care of some family issues,” fellow Call of Duty co-creator and Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella said.
“We have worked together on some amazing accomplishments over the years, starting with an early Segasoft project that never shipped. It is sad to see things come to an end, but there are times when change is best for growth, both personally and professionally. I wish Jason the best and send my best wishes to his family.
“Respawn continues to amaze me, the team here is resilient and talented. E3 will be therapeutic for us, as we finally get to start showing our work again. I know the team was excited about the response we got from just admitting we were going to attend.”
