IGN UK Interview with Game Director Craig 'Silirrion' Morrison

Posted Tue, Nov 25, 2008 by Martuk

IGN UK recently spoke with Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures Game Director Craig 'Silirrion' Morrison about his transition to the role as Game Director for AoC and how he believes it stacks up to other top titles on the market such as Lord of the Rings Online, Everquest 2, Warhammer and World of Warcraft.

IGN: Let's start off with more general questions. You recently took over as game director at Funcom after longtime employee Gaute Godager left the company. How's the transition been and have you made any major changes to the way things work? Is there a new focus or direction?

Craig Morrison: I think the transition has been quite smooth. I have been in the company some time and already knew the majority of team so there wasn't any sweeping changes as it were. There was going to be a natural transition anyway as the developers moved from production of a launch title to getting set up for ongoing development which has different considerations as it is. Given my background with a live MMO, I think I was able to help that process along for sure, but we haven't radically changed anything in that regard. In terms of direction, I usually look at things in a very straightforward way.

The high-fantasy setting isn't the only thing that would make Game of Thrones a fantastic story-based MMO.
