Guerrilla Games co-founder Arjan Brussee takes Executive Producer role at EA's Visceral Games
Do you know who Arjan Brussee is? If not, well, in order to help you know a little more about the world, the answer is that he is the co-founder and Development Director at Guerrilla Games, the studio behind the Killzone series.
Or, to be more exact, he was. Today, Dutch website Control-Online reported that Brussee has left Guerrilla after nine years to join the developer of Dead Space, EA's Visceral Games. He will join the company as an executive producer.
"It has been a great ride. Every year there was something ambitious, new and inspiring to put my energy into," Brussee said in a letter to Guerrilla, as reported by Gamasutra. "For me, I now want to find a new personal challenge, which I hope to find at EA, and who knows where this will take me next."
Before co-founding Guerilla, Brussee worked as an external lead programmer at Epic Games, where he was the main developer for the well-received PC platformer Jazz Jackrabbit. Following Guerilla's founding, he was the executive producer on all the titles in the Killzone series right until Killzone 2.
Do you think Brussee's departure will affect Guerilla and Visceral in any noticeable way? And if so, how? Speculate away, readers!
