The studio will be led by an industry veteran Ryan Burnett.
Respawn Entertainment, a game development studio behind Titanfall, Star Wars Jedi series, and Apex Legends, has issued a statement announcing that they are to open a new studio in Madison, Wisconsin.
Planning to operate alongside Respawn studios in Sherman Oaks and Vancouver, the new branch will be primarily devoted to supporting the development of Apex Legends, although it might also participate in other ventures further down the line. According to the company's announcement, the new branch will be led by industry veteran and ex-Raven Software and Epic Games developer Ryan Burnett.
"At its core, this expansion represents Respawn's commitment to work with the most skilled, curious, and creative minds in the industry. Having just passed its fourth anniversary, our aim is to continue to make Apex Legends the premiere Battle Royale on the market," commented Daniel Suarez, SVP Operations at Respawn. "I cannot think of a better addition than the immensely talented developers in Madison working alongside our Los Angeles and Vancouver teams to help us shape what comes next."
