Another ArenaNet Co-Founder Joins Undead Labs

Posted Thu, Jan 30, 2014 by Martuk

Though Undead Labs is still under a gag order from their Microsoft overlords about the impending Class4 project, the team has expanded its roster today with the addition of yet another ArenaNet co-founder in one Patrick Wyatt. Wyatt was one of the three original co-founders of ArenaNet along with Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain. He's previously worked 9 years with Blizzard where he served as one of the leads on games in the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo series as well as co-lead on the original Guild Wars for ArenaNet.

“Today, I’m very happy to announce that Patrick has joined Undead Labs, and will be working shoulder-to-shoulder with Team Zed as we dive into the development of… well, what’s next, and beyond”, Strain wrote on the Undead Labs website.

You can read Patrick Wyatt’s introduction blog on the Undead Labs website. While he isn’t allowed to talk about what he’s working on, he did say this.

“So as per my instructions to introduce myself and provide some background, what else can I say? I can’t talk anything about what I’m working on here at Undead Labs … yet. … But … I specialize in developing really big multiplayer games. So I guess maybe I’ll be working on something like that, at least as soon as I get one of the cool lab coats everyone around here has.”
