Electronic Arts will open a new studio, based in Seattle, with the aim of creating an action-adventure game in the open world. It has no name yet, but this new EA firm will be led by Kevin Stephen, formerly head of Monolith Productions. This studio is famous for the two Middle-earth games: Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War.
Stephen will meet with Samantha Ryan , currently EA Senior Vice President and Group Managing Director, formerly President of Monolith Productions. They both agreed on their stay at Monolith. “Kevin joining forces with Samantha and the incredible teams at Electronic Arts adds even more depth to our creative collective,” says Laura Miele, Head of Studies at EA.
