  • PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matthew Higby Resigns from Daybreak

    Matthew Higby has stepped down today as the Creative Director on PlanetSide 2 and Daybreak (formerly SOE). He was one of the fortunate that seems to have survived the recent layoffs at the company but he made his resignation known to the public via a post on Reddit.
    Hey guys -

    Working on Planetside 2 has been the absolute highlight of my career, but after 4 years working on the game, it's time for a change. Today was my last day on the Planetside 2 team and at Daybreak games. 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.

    Finally, I wanted to thank all of you in the Planetside 2 community with whom I've shared the last few years, whether in stream chat, tweets, pms or comments you guys have motivated and inspired me all along. You are an amazing community that I'm looking forward to remaining a member of for a long time.

    See you on Auraxis!
