Producer and the long time front man of SOE is saying goodbye to EverQuest II. Scott Hartsman was mysterious about where he will be ending up but he did leave the possibility that he'd be working with SOE in the future.

It's time for me to see what else is out there waiting to be built. It might even end up being something involving SOE. Regardless, I'm sure we'll get a chance to meet up again, whether I'm making new MMOs, continuing to play them, or talking about them on the internet.

Hartsman also named his successor:

Taking over for me is Bruce "Froech" Ferguson. Some of you will remember his name from EQ2 beta, others of you may have met him at Fan Faires. If you have met him, you know he's one of the most straightforward guys you'll ever be lucky enough to meet.

We are sad to see Scott go, but we wish him well in everything he does.

Say your own goodbyes to Scott and read his last EQ2 Producer's letter on the EverQuest II forums.
