RIFT Producer Hal Hanlin Departs Trion Worlds

Posted Mon, Mar 04, 2013 by Martuk

Trion Worlds already lost Scott Hartsman earlier this year and Hal Hanlin has also now departed the developer. Hanlin, a former producer for RIFT, leaves Trion after more than four years to become a lead producer for social gaming giant Zynga. Hanlin made the announcement on his Facebook page over the weekend.

“Huge step today. After 4 and a half years at Trion, I have moved on. As of Monday, I will be working as a Lead Producer at Zynga. This is a huge opportunity for me professionally, and I will be working closely with some good friends.

Nothing but love for Trion, but with the maturation of Rift, there was no urgent demand for my specific skillset.

Thanks and deep respect to the people I have shared this whitewater ride with. Now it's time for some new horizons.”

We would like to wish Hal Hanlin the best in his future endeavors.
