Respawn Opening New Studio In Vancouver

In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Respawn COO Dusty Welch revealed that the company will be opening a new studio located in Vancouver Canada and will primarily focus on Apex Legends. This studio will be led by Head of Operations Henry Lee and Team Director Steven Ferreira.

When asked why they chose Vancouver, Lee stated:

“When you look at Vancouver, it’s one of our [EA’s] biggest studio locations, and Vancouver is full of talented people in the games industry, so there was a natural fit with Steven coming on board with his core team and really establishing that foundation. Now we’re just adding the missing pieces to it.

“This is a great opportunity, not just for the Vancouver studio to bring some new creative challenges to people already there, but also to the local industry in terms of being part of the Apex Legends roadmap. So we’re very excited about bringing this to Vancouver and hopefully greater Canada as well, because we can tap into much more of a talent base broadly.”
