Respawn Entertainment releases another blurry melange of pixels from upcoming debut

We've not heard too much from Respawn Entertainment since June, when the company released the first comically-vague image from its work-in-progress debut. Now the studio, headed by ex-Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella, has released another image from the sci-fi shooter. Clearly someone at Respawn feels that when prepping teaser images for unveiling, no amount of Gaussian Blur is too much.

Above: Let us know what the hey you think this could be. No suggestion too far-fetched

While we deduced that the studio's first teaser probably referred to the most famous image of the Loch Ness Monster, this one's subject matter is a little less discernible (which is obviously saying something). Some sort of explosion, as viewed by a glaucoma patient? A really big cake? Respawn might have some of the best talent in the business at its disposal, but if the company's not able to get this issue under control before launch, that game's first patch is going to be the most necessary software update in the history of games as we know them.

    Star Wars: Battlefront III.

    Looks like two demolished bridges and a mushroom cloud/water tower. Nuclear Wasteland?

    I reckon its a new Star Wars game. SciFi RPG, sounds like a new KOTOR! Although I would rather it be BioWare developing it. I know im totally wrong, but one can hope!

    I'm saying mushroom cloud in the background. But here's a wild card for you - what if... ...Respawn had taken over the development for Timesplitters 4?

    looks like master chief in the foreground, no offense to all parties involved. Looks Sci-Fi to me! Could not be more excited to see what these guys pull off.

    Have to agree with you. The first thing I saw when I looked at this photo was masterchief at the front left. Maybe sci-fi but that kind of looks like a blurry revolver at the bottom right. Either Respawn will release the actual image and everyone will go "Ohh, I see it now" or they don't have a proper image and they've just made a blurry one to screw with us. Only time can tell...

    SAme thing here. I'd want to think it's battlefront 3, but that's a bit too foolish to hope for.

    I see aliens and what looks like a mushroom cloud and one of the aliens has a gun i believe.

    Okay guys, I'll give you an exclusive. That's right: it's my cock. Gloriously seen from many miles away, we had to blur it for the press releases.

    I see something I will instantly forget about in an hour or two. Seriously, I understand creating buzz but who the hell is going to remember any of this a week from now? I completely forgot about the last pic until I saw this one.

    I had a drama teacher, who was also an amateur actor, last year who told me that he was going to work as a voice actor for a sci-fi game for Respawn. I didn't believe him, until he mentioned Jason West and Vince Zampella. I knew that he didn't know anything about video games, so how would he know those names? He told us it was going to be a FPS/RPG set in space. He didn't tell us anything else, except that he was going to start working in June of this year. I haven't heard from him, since he moved schools, but I'll try to contact him again.

    It's an alternate universe in which the atomic bomb was invented during the 1800's. It's a cowboy game with nuclear weapons.
  • CommanderCrunch - December 21, 2011 3:47 p.m.

    I see a mushroom cloud in the background
  • inkyspot - December 21, 2011 3:21 p.m.

    Why even bother releasing an image like this, Homie must feel that he has everyone hanging off hair follicles of his nut sack.
  • inkyspot - December 21, 2011 3:26 p.m.

    Okay that was a little mis directed, still think release this garbage image is a bunch of crap.
  • fatdog12300 - December 21, 2011 3:09 p.m.

    I think it might me a face. You can kinda see an eye (the white spot up and left) and a mouth ( the red blob in the middle of the bottom.)
