In the wake of EA’s layoff of over 200 testers, Respawn Entertainment announces the establishment of its third studio in Madison, Wisconsin. The new branch, spearheaded by Ryan Burnett, former director of engine production at Epic Games, will focus on developing and supporting the success of ‘Apex Legends,’ Respawn’s popular battle royale shooter. Burnett explains that Wisconsin’s pool of talent makes it an ideal location for the studio, as he’s been working on first-person shooter games in the region for a long time.
Steven Ferreira, the game director for ‘Apex Legends,’ expressed enthusiasm about the new studio, citing the extra space it will provide for the team to experiment and innovate. This constant cycle of trying new things, he believes, is what keeps the game evolving and exciting. Despite the recent layoffs in Baton Rouge, Respawn remains optimistic about the future of ‘Apex Legends’ and sees it as a franchise that will endure for years to come.
The gaming industry is rife with excitement as Respawn Entertainment expands its horizons with the establishment of its third studio, geared towards fueling the success of their hit game, ‘Apex Legends.’ As the studio strives to innovate and experiment, the gaming community eagerly anticipates the upcoming launch of Paradox Interactive’s new game, ‘Life By You,’ set to hit Early Access this summer.
