Rare executive George Andreas joins Sony Computer Entertainment Europe
Former long-serving Rare executive George Andreas tendered his resignation from the studio, announcing that he would now begin working a new position at PlayStation Europe's London headquarters as Creative Director.
Andreas worked at Rare for over 16 years, where he served as as game director. He played a key role in the development of Kinect as well as both Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero, in addition to working on many of the games which made the studio famous in the first place (Banjo Kazooie, Viva Piñata, Donkey Kong 64, Goldeneye, and Killer Instinct Gold all come to mind).
"My forward-thinking and unique creative vision combined with my world class user experience-focused skills have made me a key go-to person throughout the organization for many hardware and software initiatives" reads Andreas's LinkedIn profile. Judging by the game pedigree, that statement's probably spot on.
A gamer at heart, Nick started writing when he was a child. He holds a BA in English, works as a freelancer, and loves every minute of it. One day, he hopes to net himself a career in game design - but that's something for the future.
