Only time will tell...
As of now Respawn isnt acquired by EA
and Respawn has 100% creative liberties and have a bit of marketing choice liberties.
This could, of course, all change out of nowhere
The Respawn situation got even messier after that.
-Jason West, President/co-founder/50% owner/project lead, left the company and moves across the country
-Their lead engineer Francesco Gigliotti leaves shortly before the official registration but after it was rumor West stopped showing up at the offices
-Todd Alderman their lead multiplayer designer, he did most of the design work on COD 4's multi, leaves at the same time. Him and the engineering lead were the first to quit IW to go to Respawn. Known to be really loyal to West.
-Another design lead Zied Reike leaves the company a lil bit later. Chills for a while, makes a iOS game, then joins Nuaghty Dog
So two of their 5 design leads are gone, and their lead engineer is gone. Jason West was the one pushing for dedicated servers and 60fps, he was the one who had a "strong relationship" with Microsoft. So Respawn's future will be very interesting with him. I can see that team blowing up again to be honest
