Daybreak mourns the death of H1Z1’s lead animator

    
8

This week, Daybreak is grieving over the loss of one of its key developers, David “Sarge” Carter. Carter worked as an animator on a couple of the MMOs for the studio and was instrumental in the industry over the last quarter-decade.

“You probably haven’t heard his name but if you played PlanetSide 2 or H1Z1 you’ve seen his work,” said Twitch’s Jimmy Whisenhunt. “Incredibly talented animator. We worked together for a few years at SOE, tremendous dude.”

“This really made me sad,” said former Daybreak CEO John Smedley. “David was amazing to work with. Always an optimist and a true pleasure to work with. He will be missed!”

Our condolences to all of his friends, family, and colleagues.

a quarter decade? don’t hear that someone worked at a company 2 and a half years put like that often.

Condolences to the family, but yeah that jumped out at me, too: “I didn’t stay with that job long, only a thousandth of a decade.”

yeah when I read it it almost seemed like a mistake. Quarter century maybe. And of course, condolences to friends, family and colleagues.

I just looked at the video. It’s from 2014 and he says he’s worked there for 4 years. So it is a mistake. So a decade or quarter century could be accurate.

Never happy to read something like this. As Camren before me states: I hope you grabbed life by the horns and lived to the fullest.
