Respawn Says EA “Had No Hand” With Apex Legends’ Development

In what could be described as very good news to many, Respawn Entertainment Executive Producer Drew McCoy revealed in an interview with Game Informer that Electronic Arts “had no hand” with the development of their recently released free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends.

McCoy said:

Not to be throwing EA under the bus, but this wasn’t the game they were expecting. I had to go to executives and show it to them and explain it and…not convince but more “Hey, trust us! This is the thing you want out of us.” As a corporation, they can only quantify based on past data and they’ve never done anything like this before. There’s a giant rainbow question mark over revenue projections for this game. They’re like “We don’t know! We can’t predict.” This is a game we had to say “This is what we want to do. Help us get there.” They had no hand in development or anything about this game.
