EA OPENS NEW SEATTLE STUDIO

Electronic Arts is set to open a new office in the Seattle area, to be led by Marcus Lehto, former creative director at Bungie. Lehto is known as a co-creator of the Halo series, and worked as art director on Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Halo 3.

The new studio will focus on first person type games. EA recently opened a new studio in Vancouver which is said to be very energy efficient.
