Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto opens a new EA studio focusing on first-person games

Halo co-founder Marcus Lehto opened a new EA studio about seven months after the closure of V1 Interactive, focusing on first-person games. V1 Interactive is a Disintegration studio founded by Lehto.

Lehto co-founded V1 Interactive in 2016 with SOCOM co-founder Michael Gutmann. The studio created “Breakdown”. Although the game showed great hope, it did not get the response that the team hoped. V1 Interactive announced that it will close on March 8 Earlier this year. Now, more than seven months later, Lehto has restarted making games, this time under the umbrella of EA.

Hi everyone, I’m happy to announce that I have joined EA as a game director to establish a new studio in the Seattle area dedicated to first-person games. I can’t wait to share more about what we are creating.

As Lehto mentioned in the above tweet, this new studio will focus on first-person games, which is exactly in line with Lehto’s Halo history. Maybe he is making a sci-fi first-person shooter for EA, and the company does not currently have much of it.
