The EA studio (responsible for Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order or Apex Legends) responds forcefully to the harassment suffered by its employees, and will take action if necessary.
The harassment of workers of a video game studio or company is becoming more and more common. That is why we are not surprised (although we strongly condemn it) what has happened to Respawn, an Electronic Arts studio known for Apex Legends or Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
If you remember, Respawn does not go through the best relationship with its community. A clear example is the goodbye of Titanfall and Titanfall 2, a move that many fans of the saga do not forgive the studio.
Now the center of criticism is Apex Legends, the Battle Royale of Respawn and the studio’s main game-as-a-service. Let’s remember that they are already working on three new Star Wars games (one is Jedi Survivor).
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Apex Legends players are very unhappy about the lack of news, and some have opted for harass respawn employees in social networks.
Respawn has decided to put an end to the problem by announcing measures against the harassment of its workers. It is a necessary movement and one that is not common enough in these times. The study is more forceful than ever on its official Twitter account.
Below you can read Respawn’s statement:
— Respawn (@Respawn) September 22, 2022
”We welcome feedback from the community, but the line between constructive criticism and harassing our team should never be crossed. We want to remind users that we have zero tolerance for threats and harassment of our workers. We will take the necessary measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees”.
In this way, Respawn makes it clear to the community that will not tolerate threats and hate currents towards its employees. At the moment it has not been specified what measures we are talking about.
It is surprising how a top-notch studio like Respawn is subject to this type of behavior. Especially if we take into account the work with Star Wars, as Jedi Fallen Order is considered one of the best games based on Lucasfilm and Disney IP.
What do you think of Respawn’s statement? Do you think that the reactions of the community are justifiable despite what happens in apex legends? What is clear is that harmful behavior towards workers can never be tolerated, regardless of the reason.
