Respawn was an independent studio based in Los Angeles until today but it looks as though everything that they're now developing is still going ahead as planned such as the Star Wars action game, which EA had contracted Respawn to make earlier this year.
Venturebeat broke the news, saying EA paid $315 million in cash and stock, plus a possible bonus of $140 million to acquire the studio.
Respawn CEO Vince Zameplla told GamesBeat in an interview, "We have worked together a long time from the inception of the studio". Hidden alongside the acquisition announcement came other news though. EA will provide us with more resources, access to new technologies, and expertise that we can tap into to that will help us make better games, and Respawn will retain the same creative freedom and culture we've always had.

"We've seen firsthand the world-class caliber of Respawn as a development studio with incredible vision, deep talent and an inspiring creative mindset", said Andrew Wilson, CEO of Electronic Arts, in a release.
Respawn is now developing a number of projects, including a brand new war-based VR game as well as a third-person action Star Wars game. EA has been a great partner over the years with Titanfall and Titanfall 2, and we're excited to combine our strengths.
While in the long term, the partnership is already resulting in Respawn working on a Star Wars game. "For fans, my message is we are still Respawn and we are going to make things better", said Zampella.

EA stated that Respawn has "multiple projects now in development", including the already announced Star Wars game, and "a new title in the Titanfall franchise". Titanfall 2 was tremendously received a year ago despite poor sales which are widely pinned on the timing of the launch.
Zampella has also stated there will be no layoffs or major organisational changes as part of the merger.
