Former ArenaNet art lead Jens Hauch passes away at age 46


It’s always sad to report when one of the forces behind a game has passed away. Jens Hauch served as a longtime technical art lead at ArenaNet, working on Guild Wars 2. Last year, he left ArenaNet to move over to 343 Studios where he was working on Halo Infinite. Now, sadly, he has passed away at only 46 years old.

The cause of Hauch’s death is not specified, but there is a fundraiser up to help raise money for immediate death-related expenses as well as for his family’s stability if you’d like to contribute. Our condolences to the Hauch family as well as his professional and personal peers in the field at having lost him at such a young age.
