Electronic Arts (EA) subsidiary and Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has announced it has opened an additional location in Madison, WI.

The details:

  • Respawn Entertainment is expanding to Wisconsin, establishing a new studio in Madison with the help of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). Ryan Burnett, a veteran game developer with nearly two decades of experience in the industry, will lead the studio. He previously worked as a producer at Raven Software and as the director of engine production at Epic Games. The Wisconsin venue will work alongside the studio's headquarters in Sherman Oaks, California, and its Vancouver, Canada, branch, which was established in 2019.
  • The new team will work alongside the rest of the team in other locations on Respawn's massively successful battle royale, Apex Legends. The game recently celebrated its fourth birthday and has maintained a healthy playerbase since its inception, with Respawn confirming its goal of making the game the "premier Battle Royale on the market.”
  • Respawn is now hiring for a variety of positions at its Wisconsin studio, including game designers, artists, and engineers. You can find new vacancies at the location here.
