Alex Mayberry quit at the end of June for personal reasons.
Star Citizen developer Cloud Imperium has lost a key member, as executive producer Alex Mayberry apparently quit the company at the end of June, citing ‘personal reasons,’ Gamespot learned today. However, it appears as though development of the game will continue as planned, with Global head of production Erin Roberts taking over a lot of Mayverry’s responsibilities.
“We were sorry that Alex had to leave the CIG family,” Cloud Imperium said to Gamespot. “No impact at all on development. In fact, it’s full steam ahead for us.”
That last part should be music to the ears of Star Citizen fans, especially considering the unexpected roadblocks that the development of the game seems to have hit of late- for instance, just recently, the first person shooter mode of the title, which was an integral part of the experience that a lot of people were looking forward to, was delayed indefinitely, amidst a series of technical difficulties. Given that, it is good to see that development won’t be further hindered by staff changes and departures.
