Stop Thus is not EA buying some innocent little dev.

Respawn is a company formed by two COD execs that were fired from Activision, and Repawn was always associated with EA. EA is the publisher of Titanfall, and the company started with partnership arrangement with EA. Another company wanted to buy them, but EA had the right to outbid, and took it. No matter which way it went, it sounds like Respawn was being bought.

These two execs just made a massive windfall. It wouldn't surprise me if thus was the plan from the start - to sell to EA. A number of employees followed them from Activision, and may also benefit from the buyout since they probably anticipated this since 2010.
