WildStar : Jeremy Gaffney Stepping Down as Carbine President

Posted Aug 26, 2014 by Suzie Ford

In a new and lengthy post on the Wildstar forums, Carbine Studios' Jeremy Gaffney has announced that he is stepping down as the company's president and will be taking on more of an advisory position within the studio and, as he says, perhaps elsewhere in the industry at a later point.

I have a personal “no bullshit” policy (which I think I’ve infused Carbine with as well), so let me give some context here without getting too personal. 

“Focusing on family” is most often, in my opinion, a horseshit excuse you hear from executive types (usually departing with a forcible shove). 

In my case, it is part of my reason for stepping down - through 2013, my wife and I lost six members of our families to various reasons – mostly cancer. I myself was diagnosed at the end of last year with a fatal-if-untreated form of skin cancer.  I had let it go untreated/undiagnosed for over 9 months while focusing on work instead. I dodged a bullet; surgery was successful and I’m cancer-free - but (if you ever go through anything similar you’ll know) that’s a hell of a wake-up call.
