Colin Johanson, responding to industry friends and the fantastic Guild Wars 2 community, has penned a lengthy and heartfelt letter of farewell on the GW2 Reddit. He speaks of coming to ArenaNet, his time while there, development of Guild Wars 2 and much more. It is a lovely letter and one that brings his term with ArenaNet to a close.
I have loved my time at ArenaNet. I loved my time working with the amazing teams and developers over the many years that really deserve far more credit than they ever receive for the work they do. I love this amazing Guild Wars community. I’ve met so many of you over the years at conventions, talked with you in game, discussed ideas through forums, and read the letters you’ve sent to our office - your passion is simply unmatched. To the ArenaNet team and to the entire community who without which there would be no game at all, it has been an absolute pleasure building games alongside you.
