It's like musical chairs over there!
Following Gaile's departure, Guild Wars team member Andrew Patrick also announced that he would be leaving his current role at ArenaNet, although he'll be remaining within the company.
For those of you who have not heard yet, I will be moving to a new role at ArenaNet. When I first heard about Gaile’s decision to step away from CR, I started thinking about my career and my future. You could say I found myself at a sort of crossroads where I could either continue on my current path of serving on the community relations team moving towards GW2, or explore new possibilities.
It has always been a dream of mine to be involved in game development. I have been a gamer since I was old enough to sit up, and ever since getting horribly addicted to the StarCraft map editor when I was a teenager, I have always been particularly interested in the development side of the industry. While community relations is a very enjoyable job (most of the time, heh) it does not really teach the skills and knowledge necessary to move into the development role I am interested in.
