A post was published on the PlanetSide 2 Reddit earlier today from the now-former Creative Director Matt Higby, informing the PS2 community that he has now officially departed from Daybreak Game Studio. The early reactions suspected that Higby’s departure may have been related to the recent firings within the network but Higby has been considering leaving for some time and instead just found this to be a good opportunity, considering the timing.
He went on to praise the team of developers behind PlanetSide 2 highlighting the experience as the “absolute highlight of my career”. Today marked the last day for Matt Higby on the PlanetSide 2 team and he has yet to give any information on his plans for the future.

I can’t stress this enough, the folks working on every aspect of the game, developers, marketing, community are talented, hard working people who care more than you can imagine – I’m fully confident they’re going to do an amazing job on the next leg of the journey.
Finally, I wanted to thank all of you in the Planetside 2 community with whom I’ve shared the last few years, whether in stream chat, tweets, pms or comments you guys have motivated and inspired me all along. You are an amazing community that I’m looking forward to remaining a member of for a long time.[/quote]
