Former God of War III director, Stig Asmussen, joins Respawn


Stig Asmussen, formerly of Sony Santa Monica and also known for his work on the God of War series, has joined Respawn Entertainment.



Having previously served as director of God of War III, Asmussen will be working on something with Respawn as Game Director, although apparently it's not Titanfall, so perhaps he's making a start on the sequel?

Asmussen departed Studio Santa Monica in March after the cancellation of a new IP he was thought to be heavily involved in.

This is good news for the whole industry. GOW3 was a great game and whilst Ascension wasnt very good, its good news he will be making new IP's

"its good news he will be making new IP's" - Not so sure it is considering his inability to get his last new IP up to an acceptable working state after years in development was allegedly a big part of why he ended up having to leave Sony Santa Monica. Also, are Respawn likely to produce any new IPs anytime soon or are they more likely to become EA's Titanfall factory from here on out?

On that note, there is probably a joke to be made about God of War and Titans and falling as a metaphor for Stig's career move, but chances are it wouldn't be very amussen... groan...
