Today was my last day at Funcom. After almost 11 years (8 of these on TSW!), I’ve decided to follow up on other opportunities.
My top priorities over the last few months was always to ensure the proper release and quality of Dawn of the Morninglight. I’m really glad this went well and it seems that you’ve all been enjoying the new content (even if it felt a bit short… I know!).
Now that this is out of the way, I feel at peace handing the torch over to Chris Meredith, who you might know as @Nirvelle, to lead the ship and ensure the bright (and by bright, I mean in the darkest tentacular Cthulhuesque meaning of the word) future of Secret World Legends. Chris has always been a source of great ideas, and I have no doubts that he will take good care of the game and of you guys, the best community any MMO ever had!
It’s very weird saying good-bye, after being a part of the Secret World for so long. It’s a fantastic universe that I genuinely love. It has so many stories to tell still and there is so much left to explore. I feel privileged to have gotten the chance to be a part of it. I’m proud to say that we’ve pushed the boundaries of what the MMO genre has done in terms of story-telling and immersion (rainbow unicorn masks aside maybe?).
We have more stories planned to expand on the South African lore and legends, and more updates to follow. I’m excited to play through that new content as a player myself in the future, and I trust Chris to help the team deliver quality updates.
It’s been an absolute pleasure sharing this universe with all of you! And remember the teachings of Marquard: “We are all made of Stars!”
