Former God of War 3 Director Joins Respawn

Former God of War 3 creative director and Sony Santa Monica employee Stig Asmussen has joined Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment a few months ago.

Vince Zampella, the studio’s co-founder, told Polygon that Asmussen is working as a game director at Respawn, and he’s not involved with Titanfall. Rumors point to this particular game being a sequel to Titanfall, though there isn’t enough evidence to prove it.

Stig Asmussen was a victim of the severe  layoffs that hit Sony Santa Monica a few months ago, where at least 65 employees were affected. Sony reportedly canceled an unannounced game project that Asmussen was leading creatively, and may have influenced his departure from the studio.

Zampella concluded by saying that Respawn is “super excited to have him.”
