Two important names left Apex Legends today. At this point, a new name came to replace one of those who left. Here are the details…
Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier is leaving Respawn Entertainment. Grenier, who is one of the founding members of the company and has worked there for 11 years, said in a blog post that he will be leaving. He added that working at Respawn for a long time has been an unforgettable journey. In addition, design director Jason McCord is another employee leaving Respawn.
Apex Legends, new game director Steven Ferreira
Grenier stated that he is confident that Apex Legends will continue to be in great hands and that this game and community will continue to be taken care of. At this point, the new Apex Legends game director was Steven Ferreira. Grenier said that Ferreira joined the Apex Legends development team in June 2019 and has since led half the team.
Chad Greiner finally ended his words as follows:
At Respawn we have always believed that new leadership and new team members mean new ideas, new energy and innovation. This could not be a more accurate statement to describe Steven’s contributions over the years. As we move away from Respawn, I want you to know how important everyone in the studio is. All this game-making won’t work without you. It was a pleasure to watch the game and the community grow.
McCord: I’m going to gather some energy on Earth
Jason McCord, another name who left the Apex Legends team, also made statements on the subject. At this point, he said, “It’s hard to leave a game and a team you love. But it’s time to do something new. No plans yet. I’m going to take a little walk around the world and gather energy. Stay tuned!” said.
No word yet on where Grenier and McCord will go after Respawn. The roster change comes after it was announced that Respawn co-founder Vince Zampella will lead the Battlefield franchise in a big way.
