The MMO industry is a vibrant market that’s always shifting as developers move between projects. So who has gone where lately?
For starters, former EverQuest Next Lead Content Designer Steve “Moorgard” Danuser has migrated over to World of Warcraft, where he’s taken up the position of a senior designer. Danuser was one of the many developers let go during the Daybreak layoffs this past February.
Some Elder Scrolls Online players have been wondering where the heck Lead Gameplay Designer Nicholas Konkle has been. “Not with ZeniMax” is the answer; Konkle has taken up with the folks at Riot Games as a senior game designer for League of Legends. Another departure from ESO is Gameplay Designer Maria Aliprando, who according to her Linkedin is no longer with ZeniMax as of this month.
