Bloomberg (alternate link) has learned that game industry veteran Stig Asmussen is leaving Electronic Arts. Asmussen, who works at EA’s Respawn Entertainment, was responsible for directing both Star Wars Jedi titles for EA, including this year’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which recently received official support for NVIDIA DLSS 3 and Frame Generation. There doesn’t seem to be any word yet on where Asmussen is headed, but EA has assured Star Wars Jedi: Survivor players that more updates for the game are on the way.

“After careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best of luck,” an EA spokesperson said in a statement. “Veteran Respawn leaders will be stepping up to guide the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.”

Asmussen, a leader at the EA subsidiary Respawn, oversaw two hit games. The first, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, was released in 2019 to critical and commercial success and reached 20 million players. The sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, came out in April and has topped sales charts.
