Respawn Entertainment Loses Key Character Of An Unannounced Project

Mohammad Alavi, who made his name with Apex Legends alongside Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, leaves Respawn Entertainment after 11 years.



On Tuesday, Mohammad Alavi took to social media to confirm his departure from Respawn Entertainment, where he had worked since the company’s founding 11 years ago after leaving Infinity Ward. His departure from the team responsible for Apex Legends and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has raised questions about whether his development, an unannounced action-adventure game, will continue.

In a message shared on Twitter, Alavi thanks all the colleagues he’s met over the years, where he’s been able to learn from some of the most talented developers and help create franchises he’s very proud of (Titanfall and Apex Legends). “It’s a bittersweet feeling: excited for the next adventure, but sad to leave my family behind. It’s the end of an era,” he commented on social media.

No official news yet on what her next project will be and with which company or new studio.

There’s also not much news on who will take over the development he worked on as creative director at Respawn Entertainment. The only information comes from VentureBeat, whose sources claim that the Californian team’s third video game in the pipeline has not been cancelled.

Mohammad Alavi has been in the industry for nearly 20 years and has worked on some of the most successful shooter games. He is best known as the designer of the famous “No Russian” mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Now it remains to be seen what his next step will be and whether he intends to stay in the action-shooter genre or move on to challenges in other areas of the industry.

Respawn Entertainment has three projects in the pipeline: further development of Apex Legends, this unannounced title, and a sequel to Jedi: Fallen Order.
