Respawn Entertainment provided a full run-down of what is to come tomorrow February 4, 2020 when they launch the fourth season of Apex Legends. You may recall that the title originally launched completely free without any microtransactions, and has been heavily monetized by EA since, but is still found very enjoyable by many players. This is rumored to have been a sacrifice planned as part of a deal to get EA’s hands-off seal of approval for a no-microtransactions Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. You can read more about that in our Market Research file, but if you’re still enjoying Apex Legends despite its reliance on add-on content for revenue, there are some interesting changes hitting us tomorrow as this Season 4: Assimilation update hits the game.
Over the course of such a legendary career as Vince Zampella, we have to keep in mind that external factors are always going on behind-the-scenes which cannot and will never be spoken about directly out loud. This is due to a variety of reasons, among them being contractual obligations, saving face, or even legality in some cases. His name has made the headlines more than once in the gaming industry, and always for the same reason – this is a highly sought after individual with Activision and EA Games fighting over the talent acquisition numerous times over the past few decades!
Recent news has seen Vince go from the co-founder of Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Titanfall 2, Apex Legends, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond) to also head of DICE LA which will receive a new name and re-branding soon. Looking closer, it’s clear Vince is also the calling shots at overhauling EA now – and we are expecting to see the success level of the company improve drastically over the next two years.
