Today, according to a Gameindustry.biz article, Respawn Entertainment announced they have opened a new studio in Vancouver, Canada. This comes out as the studio has celebrated its tenth year in the business since the acrimonious split between 48 Infinity Ward developers with their publisher, Activision.
The studio will be there to support Apex Legends and are in it for the long term.
The Director of the Studio, Chad Grenier, states: “As long as you can carve out that time and not get sucked into the day-to-day live service, innovations will happen”
During a prior interview with IGN, Boss Vince Zampella hints at a new shooter, but it won’t be anytime soon.
“At some point, I would personally like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make that happen.”
