“Instead of listing what we want to do and, therefore, what roles we need, we start: we know we want to build Apex, and Apex has a great opportunity to evolve in the future, being a live service game,“, said team director Steven Ferreira to Games Industry. "So we started with someone who was passionate about making Apex, and we built a team around strong people, as opposed to a project plan in which you would conventionally start a project."

The new Vancouver studio will be dedicated to updating and maintaining Apex Legends, but Respawn COO Dusty Welch emphasized that the studio is not limited to battle royale. “We love to play,” he said to Games Industry. “The director of the studio, Vince Zampella loves to play in all types of projects. Your taste in creating games is not just for snipers. But look, you have Star Wars out there. - is a great passion for Vince and me - and we love all kinds of different games, and we will continue to think about ways to expand ”.

On the future of Titanfall and Apex Legends

We know one thing about Respawn's other projects: he's not currently working on another Titanfall game. Players have been looking forward to more sniper action since the undeserved failure of Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends; which uses a lot of Titanfall weapons and systems to great effect, just reinforced that. The good news is that Zampella says that a revival of the series has not been ruled out, and many other people at Respawn would love to make it happen.

Anyway, in this post we detail the latest Apex Legends update notes.
