For Honor Creative Director Leaves Ubisoft.
For Honor creative director Jason Vandenberghe has left Ubisoft today and joined ArenaNet. Vanderberghe was one of the lead creative designers behind For Honor. He came in the spotlight after he announced For Honor during 2015’s E3 conference. Vandenberghe has today joined ArenaNet. He is now the lead director of the well-known series Guild Wars.
He said that Guild Wars 2’s lead designer convinced him to make this move. “The story is long and complicated. The [short] 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 that sealed the deal,” He said.
“I’ve had nine amazing years at Ubisoft. It has been the best experience of my career. In many ways, I was forged by that place. I leave it full of gratitude for everything I was given the chance to do there, a profound love for all the amazing people who make that place what it is (imagine hundreds of FB tags here), and a bright hope for the company’s future. I look forward to playing all y’all’s games, now and into the future. (Take good care of For Honor, you guys! We did a great thing together. I can’t wait to see where you take it from here. )”
Jason Vandenberghe not only was the man behind For Honor but he also helped on other big projects like Far Cry 3.
