Respawn Jedi director Asmussen is leaving the studio
Industry veteran Stig Asmussen is leaving Respawn Entertainment.
As reported by Bloomberg, he is departing the studio after nine years, during which he was the director on both 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and this year’s sequel, Jedi: Survivor.
Before that, Asmussen spent almost 11 years at Sony’s Santa Monica studio where he worked on the first three God of War titles. His career started at Midway Games where he worked for nearly four years.
In a statement, an EA rep didn’t name who specifically would be replacing Asmussen as game director, but did say that Respawn vets would be moving to lead development.
“After careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best of luck,” they said.
“Veteran Respawn leaders will be stepping up to guide the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.”
