God of War Creative Director Stig Asmussen Joins Respawn Entertainment
Stig Asmussen had been working for SCE Santa Monica Studio for almost 11 years when he left this March. Now it seems Asmussen has made Respawn Entertainment his new home, according to an email he sent to Polygon.
Respawn’s co-founder Vince Zampella has also confirmed the news that Stig is working as a game director and the game he is working on is not Titanfall. While Vince mentioned Titanfall, he didn’t talk about the sequel so it is possible that Stig is working on that, or it could be an entirely new IP.
Stig Asmussen is perhaps best known for his works in the God of War franchise. He first served as an environment artist in God of War, later as art director in God of War II and then as creative director in God of War III.
Before leaving Santa Monica Studios, Stig was working on an unnamed project which was later cancelled prior to a round of lay-offs. Whether Stig was part of those lay-offs or he left on his own is still unclear.
Sony fans might be excited to hear this since since Stig worked on one of their beloved franchise and might take this as a hint that he is working to make the Titanfall sequel available on PS4.
