Pantheon mourns the loss of technology lead Kurt ‘Molad’ Habetler

Do you... want to hang out, man?

A dark cloud has once again settled over Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. Yesterday, Visionary Realms announced that it recently lost one of its key teammates — this time, Technology Lead Kurt Habetler.

“With heavy hearts, we regret to share that Kurt ‘Molad’ Habetler has passed away,” the studio posted. “He was a kind and gentle soul. Kurt was very thoughtful with everyone he met and had a way of instantly making you feel at ease. His identifiable and nearly-trademarked ‘greetings!’ quickly became a beloved debut to our meetings, and something each of us looked forward to hearing. Kurt was a good friend with an amazing work ethic and a sincere interest in people. He was encouraging, spirited, inspiring and empathetic. We feel a great loss with the passing of Molad and we will miss him immensely.”

Habetler passed away on November 20th and was described by his family as “a kind, gentle soul who loved people, animals, the mountains, nature, and life.” Massively OP sends comfort and love to his family and friends during this difficult time.
