Daybreak Game Company has had a lot of shakeup since breaking off from Sony and changing its name from Sony Online Entertainment. The waves haven't settle yet; now it seems that PlanetSide 2’s creative director Matthew Higby has decided to resign from the company.
"Today was my last day on the PlanetSide 2 team and at Daybreak games," said Higby in a post on Reddit, "This is a move I've been considering for a while now, and the reorganization provided the right opportunity for me to exit."
"Planetside 2 is in great hands, with terrific people who honestly care about the game and the players. I can't stress this enough, the folks working on every aspect of the game, developers, marketing, community are talented, hard working people who care more than you can imagine – I'm fully confident they're going to do an amazing job on the next leg of the journey."
PlanetSide 2 is still headed for PS4 something this year; for more details on the game check out our impression of the PC release here.
It's not usually a good sign when creative directors leave just after layoffs and corporate restructurings. Hopefully those who recently left Daybreak will be able to find a good home, and that Daybreak's upcoming roster of games will find their developmental footing again.
