Far Cry 2 creator leaves Ubisoft
The man behind games like Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and Far Cry 2 has decided to move on from Ubisoft.
Clint Hocking has announced that the time has come for him to move on after nine years at Ubisoft.
Hocking made the announcement on his blog entitling the entry '451 Weeks', the length of time he spent at Ubisoft Montreal.
Hocking wrote: "I am too comfortable. I am too content. And I know where that can lead for me.
"Fortunately, for the first time in my life, I know the way forward. The way forward lies in my having the courage that I did not know I had a decade ago to bid farewell to those tragically comforting habits. I need to walk on hot coals and sleep on a bed of nails. I need to chew on broken glass. I need to drink paint. This post has gotten long enough and I am still afraid to come to the point, but what I really need more than anything is to write these words.
"I gave notice of my resignation to Ubisoft on Monday, April 26th, 2010."
