In a new post on the DC Universe Online forums, it has been confirmed that Chris Cao is indeed leaving Sony Online Entertainment. While not mentioning Cao by name, the producer's letter introduces "new game director Mark Anderson". The letter also talks about Update 3 and progress the team is making towards getting out.
Finally, I would like to announce that we have a new Game Director for DC Universe Online, Mark Anderson. Mark was the Art Director for DCUO at launch and was dually responsible for the game’s combat system. Joining us from the God of War team, Mark has over the years been one of the most creative and passionate members of the DCUO team and we are very excited for the vision he has for the game moving forward. If you see Mark (aka MAnderson) in the forums make sure to say hi and tell him to get back to work.
