At the moment, those efforts primarily revolve around Fortnite.
Epic Games has just bolstered its staff with an industry great.
Jason West left Respawn Entertainment back in 2013, and did not move to a new studio.

Now, one source tells HollywoodLife that Brad is extremely happy about the development since it was something he really wanted. Angelina publicly acknowledged her relationship with Brad in 2006 when she announced that she was expecting his child.
According to The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley, Epic has recently hired Jason West, a former co-founder of both Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment. What that could be, however, is unknown. Fans are very interested in seeing what West and the creative minds at Epic Games could work on together. Epic has put out titles in various degrees of early access for much of the past few years, but nothing's caught on the way Fortnite has.
According to Keighley, West has been at the firm for at least a month. Considering his pedigree, it's not hard to see why.
Currently, Epic Games has not made the official announcement about the hiring.
