The siphon that delivers Infinity Ward expatriates to Vince Zampella and Jason West's new company Respawn Entertainment appears to have been primed. Two more have joined the new studio: senior software engineer Chris Lambert and designer Brent McLeod are new hires at the new EA Partners-funded studio, according to their LinkedIn profiles.

In addition to those two, three more have left Infinity Ward. Lead character artist Joel Emslie announced his departure on Facebook, along with artists Ryan Lastimosa and Brad Allen. Either these three have yet to join Respawn -- or they have yet to get over to LinkedIn to announce that they've joined Respawn.

Update: Lastimosa and senior level designer Jason McCord have joined Respawn, GameSpot reports. Three more IW staff have announced their departure from IW as well.
