Jason VandenBerghe Joins Up as Director of Design

Jason VandenBerghe Joins Up as Director of Design - MMORPG.com

Former Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Jason VandenBerghe has joined ArenaNet as its new Director of Design. Over 9 years with Ubisoft Montreal, VandenBerghe had been instrumental in some of Ubisoft's biggest IPs including Far Cry 3 and For Honor. With ArenaNet, he will be working with individuals and teams to assist in development rather than being more "hands on".

VandenBerghe wrote on his Facebook page:

The story is long and complicated. The tl;dr version is that I went out there on a lark--and then fell head-over-heels in love. Isaiah did an amazing job of setting the table... but it was all the people that I met there there that sealed the deal.

It's a big step. I won't be making games directly any more - I'll be studio level, shepherding teams and growing people. I'm... sort of thrilled about how difficult that sounds. It's exactly what I want to be doing right now.

VandenBerghe will start with ArenaNet on July 17th.
