Stig Asmussen, the director behind Respawn Leisure’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and its latest sequel has left writer Digital Arts for unspecified causes.

2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was an enormous hit, promoting tens of millions of copies and garnering rave evaluations from critics and followers. Earlier this yr, the sport’s sequel, Jedi: Survivor, debuted to equally constructive evaluations and gross sales. Each video games have been seen by many as an enormous enchancment over EA’s earlier Star Wars output, which included multiplayer shooters and canceled tasks. And now, the person who helped lead improvement on the Jedi video games is not with Respawn or the studio’s mother or father firm EA.

Based on a brand new September 13 report from Bloomberg, Stig Asmussen has left EA, with the Madden and Battlefield writer confirming the information with the outlet.

When requested in regards to the departure, EA offered Kotaku with this assertion:

After cautious thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has determined to go away Respawn to pursue different adventures, and we want him the perfect of luck. Veteran Respawn leaders can be stepping as much as information the workforce as they proceed their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

The precise purpose for Asmussen’s departure shouldn’t be but recognized. His exit from Respawn, not less than from the surface, does appear stunning, because the Jedi video games have been thought-about enormous successes for EA and its stewardship of Star Wars. His sudden exit appears much more stunning when you think about that, in response to Asmussen, the Jedi collection of video games was at all times meant to be a trilogy, implying a 3rd sport is coming sooner or later.

In March, a month earlier than the launch of Jedi: Survivor, Asmussen advised IGN that he “at all times wished to see [the Jedi saga] as a trilogy.” He defined additional that the workforce had “concepts of what we might do past [Jedi: Survivor].”

Whereas it’s very probably EA and Respawn will develop a 3rd sport within the widespread franchise, finishing the presumably deliberate trilogy, it’s going to seemingly be with out the director who helped make the primary two chapters memorable.
