Som det blev rapporteret tidligere på ugen, har Raphael Colantonio fra Prey og Dishonored-udvikleren Arkane Studios, valgt at forlade sit eget studie efter 20 år. Som et følge af annonceringen snakkede vi med ham under Gamelab i Barcelona.
"I need to get some time off to decide really what I want to do next," Colantonio told us in Catalonia. "I've been doing these games for such a long time now, and I just want to take a real long vacation, which I never had a chance to have in 18 years."
Colantonio forlader firmaet så han kan "focus on my own projects, on my son, you know, on playing music; smaller things that are just going to make me happy."
Harvey Smith vil forblive øverste styrmand hos Arkane Austin, imens Colantino bliver i Lyon indtil, en glidende overgang har fundet sted imellem ham og den nye ledelse. Til slut havde colantino følgende at sige om Arkane:
"Arkane has been around for 18 years, we've had ups and downs, and it's really part of the - I wouldn't say even ups and downs, I would say lefts and rights - it's part of the industry, it's part of the process. And, you know, 18 years after that, it's time for me to leave.
"It doesn't mean that things are not going keep going with Arkane. Zenimax and Bethesda are very confident in the capacity of Arkane to make great games, and the guys at Arkane are very capable.
"I'll be around for a while, and I wish everybody the best, and I'm sure there's many more Arkane games to play, and I'll be one of their first fans."
