Does Marcus Lehto’s name ring a bell? One of the creators of the Halo series is now heading to new horizons as the man nothing less than the creation of an entirely new studio within Electronic Arts.
One FPS, once again!
Formerly Bungie founded his own studio, V1 Interactive, to build FPS Disintegration, released in June 2020. Unfortunately, the game was not a success and the servers shut down just five months after it was released.
But Marcus Lehto doesn’t give up yet. The creator who regularly shares his love for the Halo franchise on Twitter, going so far as to create new concepts no later than last September, will bounce back from EA.
So as game director, Marcus Lehto will serve Electronic Arts as he builds a new video game studio in Seattle. Without giving more details and without too many surprises, we already know that it will work on FPS type games. He’ll report to Vince Zampella and join Kevin Stephens who founded an EA studio in Seattle earlier this year tasked with an open-world action-adventure game.
Now within EA Studio, we envision that Marcus Lehto will benefit from much greater financial support than his previous project. Hopefully he has better luck than dismemberment.
