Bill Roper Hired by Improbable as Chief Creative Officer

Bill Roper has been hired by Improbable, makers of SpatialOS, as its Chief Creative Officer. His duties will include networking with development studios to make use of the cloud-based platform's features to expand and enhance new game play types within "massive, detailed and persistent online worlds".

He noted that Improbable’s customers — such as Bossa Studios, the maker of Worlds Adrift — want to build a “living universe, a persistent place with millions of creatures.” Roper believes that helping such companies realize their visions and overcome technical limitations could be “impactful and meaningful.”

Roper is a long-time game development veteran. He most recently worked as a vice president at Disney and was integral in the development of Disney Infinity. Roper has also worked in a variety of upper management positions at Cryptic Studios, Blizzard, and Flagship Studios.
