It’s with a heavy heart that I share with you today that I will be leaving Rogue Planet Games.
I’ve worked on some pretty amazing games over the past 20+ years, but can honestly say that PlanetSide 2 stands out as the one that I’m most proud of. The past year has been especially gratifying as we saw the excitement and anticipation for the future of the PlanetSide franchise return; through the effort of an amazing team of developers here at RPG, as well as a community that never gave up hope.
Over the past 8 years, I’ve established friendships and maintained regular communications with more members of the PS2 community than I can even begin to count. Many of whom have gone out of their way to help further promote and support the game. Whether by creating epic gameplay videos that amazed us, troubleshooting Live issues, tracking down cheaters, or providing feedback each day that helped us make better decisions as we planned for the future. Your dedication and contributions are why we’re here today, and why the future of the franchise is brighter than ever.
In my absence, I will be handing the reigns over to Michael Henderson (our Lead Game Designer, aka @Wrel) and Chris Farrar (our Technical Director) to co-lead the Rogue Planet Games studio and PlanetSide franchise. Michael and Chris have both taken on expanded roles on PlanetSide 2 over the past several years; through their continued leadership, along with the rest of the growing Rogue Planet Games development team, I can assure you that we are in good hands.
While I’m no longer a member of the development team, I will continue to be a member of the PlanetSide community. And as a fan, I am excited for the future of PlanetSide - especially knowing what the team has planned for 2021 and beyond.
Thank you all for your support and kind words over the years. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for allowing me to be part of this amazing ride.
Until next time.
