Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Creator Dean Evans Departs Ubisoft


Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
After nearly a dozen years of collaborating on successful games in the Far Cry, Splinter Cell, and Assassin's Creed franchises, Dean Evans has left Ubisoft.

Best known for leading the boisterous marketing campaign and creative direction for the neon-infused homage to 1980s action films, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Evans most recently was working on a new game concept with Ubisoft that the company shelved. In the aftermath, Ubisoft offered him a chance to join the editorial leadership group in Paris headed by chief creative officer Serge Hascoet, but he instead chose to step aside.

I split with my wife, and then the project I was working on was canceled. All of this massive s--- going on at the same time and I started thinking, Is the best option for me to move to another foreign country? Evans says. Im 40 this year, and its so f---ing cliche, but you do think about it in the same way you do when you turn 30. These milestones, you start thinking about what you really want to be doing and whether youre making the right decision.

Evans says hes leaving Ubisoft on good terms. Rather than immediately jump into a new endeavor, he plans to move back to the United Kingdom, then take some time off to travel. Ive been in the business now for over 20 years, nearly 12 of those have been at Ubisoft, Evans says. Ive never really taken much of a break.

When Evans eventually reboots his career, don't expect the next project to tread along the same worn path as his earlier works. After years of making bombastic shooters and tense stealth situations, he has ambitions to form a much smaller team and stretch beyond the boundaries of conventional triple-A game design.

A lot of people have been complaining about the triple-A business and the lack of risk taking, that Id be a total f---ing hypocrite if I moved forward and didnt take any risks, he says. So f--- it, I think I might go out and set up my own studio and see where that goes.

Its the dude! There were two pictures of him in the article I linked to. That image went better with what he was saying.

Or maybe I picked that one because it was ridiculous...
