Daniel Dociu Leaving ANet After 13 Years, Son to Take Over - MMORPG.com

Mike O'Brien has announced that Legendary ArenaNet Art Director Daniel Dociu is leaving the company after thirteen years with the company. His son, Horia Dociu, is taking over as the Guild Wars 2 Art Director. He has also been with ANet since 2003.

Daniel Dociu will be leaving ArenaNet. Daniel has been defining the art direction for ArenaNet since 2003, before the launch of Guild Wars, and the impact he’s made on the studio and industry will be seen for years to come. It’s been a pleasure to work with him. Daniel, thank you for thirteen wonderful years creating worlds together. We’ll miss you. We look forward to your continued success.

Horia Dociu now takes over as the art director of Guild Wars 2. Horia also first joined the Guild Wars art team in 2003. He loves the game, he lives and breathes the art, and he continues our tradition of putting art at the forefront, never settling, relentlessly pushing ourselves to new heights. With Horia as art director, the game is in great hands.

Dociu has been instrumental in the creation of some of GW2's most iconic and well-known concept art. He is widely celebrated for his unique style.
