Leading industry clairvoyant Michael Pachter has revealed what he reckons Respawn is working on right now.
"The one genre that hasn't been cloned a lot is space shooter, so I'll make a prediction here," he told Game Trailers.
"Respawn Entertainment, the ex-Infinity Ward guys - that's their next game."
According to the Pach man, Respawn's sci-fi effort will be up there with the best of the best. "They're going to make a Halo-killer, a game that's going to compete in the space shooter genre," he said.
So much for our theory that Respawn is working on a farming sim with cooking and fashion design themes plus a dancing mini-game. Wishful thinking.
