PlanetSide 2 Executive Producer, Andy Sites, Leaves Rogue Planet Games.
After 8 whole years of staying at Rogue Planet Games, the PlanetSide 2 Executive Producer and Head of the studio, Andy Sites, will be leaving.
Just Recently, Rogue Planet Games, a development studio that falls under the Daybreak Games umbrella of studios, had been obtained by EG7.
Andy spoke highly of the entire team’s work over the past 8 years and his love for PlanetSide 2 and the community. He had posted a message in the PlanetSide 2 news feed. He provided a general response to the community, thanking them for their good wishes as he looks forward to new opportunities:
Andy has left the studio in Lead Game Designer Michael Henderson and Technical Director Chris Farrar. Under his direction, the team had worked hard to transform PS2’s declining player base into a wholesome renaissance when they started pushing out new, more exciting content.
The changes appeared to have worked well enough that the team could expand development over the past couple of years. This year, Rogue Planet Games was obtained in the purchase of Daybreak Games by EG7 – a video game operating company with broad expansion plans through acquisitions.
Andy was a staple of Rogue Planet Games, who had a high rapport with the community. Many attest that he will be missed, despite his promise that he still plans to be active inside the community.
“While I’m no longer a member of the development team, I will continue to be a member of the PlanetSide community. And as a fan, I am excited for the future of PlanetSide – especially knowing what the team has planned for 2021 and beyond.”
– Former Head of Rogue Planet Games Andy Sites
We look onward to seeing where Andy arrives in the future.
