Former PlanetSide 2 Creative Director Matt Higby snapped up by Ubisoft Massive

Hate the player, not the game! It's not the player's fault that they're in the game as it is.

Looks like former PlanetSide 2 Creative Director has landed on his feet and then some: He posted on Twitter today that he’s now working for Ubisoft game studio Massive Entertainment.

Higby left Daybreak in February of last year, not longer after SOE became Daybreak and about a month before the studio’s mass layoffs. He said at the time that he’d been considering the move for a while and that the “reorganization provided the right opportunity” for his departure. “Working on Planetside 2 has been the absolute highlight of my career,” he said last year.

Thrumdi SteveJackn111 There is genuine compassion for him. Even (especially?) since his departure.

Snapped up?  Left last February?  They snap pretty slowly it seems.
From one FPS cheat hell to another, maybe he can avoid baiting the cheaters as Smed did.

DPandaren BalsBigBrother Bannex19 people are exploiting the pve dalies too and that needs stopping just as much as the wall hacks etc that happen in the DZ.  It all affects the game in a negative way and shortens its viable game life.

I hope they do manage to pull it out of the fire because it is still a fun game.  I even found myself enjoying the PvP after some initial reluctance and before all the hacking overtook everything.

TheGremmel Thrumdi SteveJackn111 Nope, lots of love for Higby in PS2.  Just check the response when he moved on.  There was even a going away party for him on the bridge at the crater on Indar, with all three factions.  The video is on Youtube somewhere, it was pretty epic.

You do realize too he would regularly play the game with everyone, often times running one alert after another, just because he was having fun, or doubling xp and stuff like that.
What did he do that was so disastrous?

BalsBigBrother Bannex19 It’s honestly just in the DZ. Which is a hit or miss for a lot of people anyways.

Samizdat A Dad Supreme TheGremmel It was a join effort. Higby was the one that wasted a lot of money for what I can only assume was vain selfish reasons, Smedley was the one that let him.

A Dad Supreme TheGremmel In fact since the construction update the game is more active now than it’s been in a long time.

Bannex19 Single player is repetitive, but fairly fun.  Multiplayer is a busted dream…
