Community manager Troy Hewitt departs from Gigantic developer Motiga

Not gignatic: the remaining workforce.

Troy Hewitt had been serving as community manager for Motiga since before the company even announced Gigantic, but all good things must come to an end. Hewitt penned a farewell letter to the community on Thursday, announcing that his final day with the company would be on Friday and that he would be bidding farewell to the community.

The letter stresses the idea that Hewitt is leaving for reasons which are entirely his own and that it’s time in his life to move on to other unspecified opportunities in the future. Speculation is no doubt going to run rampant, of course, considering that the studio has had to lay off large portions of its staff. We wish Mr. Hewitt the best of luck in the future with his next project.

Why do so many games have CM’s that leave right before launch? There’s not much of a community to manage pre-launch yet I see it happen so many times.

Sorenthaz  I really doubt he’d leave and head back down south – that’s where he originally was – he was CM for Wildstar before launch – when hype was still big – but left and moved up north for personal/family reasons

I wouldn’t speculate on a CM departure.  They are really far down the ladder.

Sorenthaz I don’t think being a community manager for Valve would be all that fun

” what did you do at work today honey ?”

Gigantic can’t seem to catch a break.  With Motiga being in WA that makes me wonder if he got an opportunity at Valve (also in the state) or if a bigger company down south gave him an offer (i.e. Riot Games).
