In the past few hours, the ranks of Respawn Entertainment have seen two important pieces of Apex Legends leave: Chad Grenier, Game Director, and Jason McCord, Design Director
Meanwhile Apex Legends continues to be updated, improved and expanded in its already immense content, among the ranks of Respawn Entertainment in the past few days there has been a lot of upheaval, and even some goodbyes. The Game Director of the game, Chad Grenier, after 11 years in the company ranks (of which he is also co-founder) announced his farewell to the company in a blog post.
Today, however, this incredible understanding reaches its end.
The man also claimed that the new Game Director of Apex Legends will be Steven Ferreira, who joined the team in June 2019 and has been leading half of the team ever since.
Here at Respawn we have always believed that new leadership and new team members lead to new ideas, new energy and new innovations. There is no better way to describe all the contributions Steven has brought to the company over the years.
Finally, Chad Grenier’s post continues with i thanks ritual:
As I take a step back from Respawn, it’s important that you know how much everyone in the company, including me, appreciates the fans and our passionate community. Without you, this whole game making thing just doesn’t work. Together, we’ve achieved some amazing things, from integrating fanarts into a game to seeing the community bring Apex Legends stories to life on Twitter even more. It has been an incredible joy to see the game and the community grow together. You can bet that I will continue to cheer for you from the stands.
Apex Legends: in addition to the Game Director, McCord, Design Director, is also leaving
To leave Respawn Entertainment is also the Design Director di Apex Legends, Jason McCord. Another round, another veteran of more than 11 years in the company, who this time announced his farewell to the game and the company with a post on Twitter, which we leave you below. There is no news yet of what the near future of these two brilliant minds will be, we’ll see.
Today is my last day at @Respawn.
11 years, 11 seasons of Apex, 11 shipped maps. I thought that was neat.
It’s tough to leave a game and a team that you love.
But, it’s time to do something new.
No plans quite yet. Going to walk the Earth for a bit and recharge. Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/qLKA2iXca9
