Matt Higby says PlanetSide 2 is “in great hands”.
After Sony Online Entertainment was purchased by Columbus Nova, leading to rebranding itself as the Daybreak Game Company, several resignations have taken place amid company-wide restructuring. One of those resignations is that of PlanetSide 2 creative director Matt Higby who wrote about it on the sub-Reddit for the franchise.
“Working on PlanetSide 2 has been the absolute highlight of my career, but after four years working on the game, it’s time for a change. This is a move I’ve been considering for a while now, and the reorganization provided the right opportunity for me to exit.
“PlanetSide 2 is in great hands, with terrific people who honestly care about the game and the players. I can’t stress this enough, the folks working on every aspect of the game, developers, marketing, community are talented, hard working people who care more than you can imagine – I’m fully confident they’re going to do an amazing job on the next leg of the journey.”
