Former God of War creative director Stig Asmussen has turned up at Respawn Entertainment.
Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella also confirmed the news, saying Asmussen is working as a game director.
Asmussen is rumoured to have been at the helm of a cancelled SCE Santa Monica Studio project that was shelved prior to a round of lay-offs. Whisperers suggest this project’s extended development hell explains the regular gap in Sony’s triple-A first-party line up. However, VG247’s own sources have dismissed a variety of related rumours.
Respawn is an independent developer although it has a very friendly relationship with EA – somewhat controversially.
