Game Designer specializing in Combat Systems

My name is Jason de Heras. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. When I was around 3-years-old, my mom put an Atari 2600 controller into my hand and the rest was history.

Currently I'm the Lead Combat Designer at Respawn Entertainment working on Star Wars. Previously, I was a Senior Combat Designer at SCE Santa Monica Studio where I used awesome technology and animations to tell characters how to behave.

I'm also a former competitive Street Fighter player which ultimately paved the way to my current path in life. My previous video game projects include God of War III and God of War:Ascension.
