More On Chris Roberts

Following todays announcement of Microsoft acquiring Digital Anvil and Chris Roberts, founder of Digital Anvil, leaving DA to pursue other ventures a few interviews popped up on the net with the main focus on the departure of Chris.

First to the questions was PC.IGN.com who talked with both Chris Roberts and Ed Fries, General Manager of the Games Group at Microsoft concerning the departure and and the acquisition and just where the four titles that are in development, one of them being an XBOX title, are standing. Here’s a blurb and the link.

IGN: I know that you’re very connected with Freelancer and Erin’s connected with the Xbox title. What sort of role are you going to play in the development of these games from this point on?

Chris Roberts: I’m basically going to be a creative consultant on Freelancer and I’m not involved in the Xbox title.

IGN: And what’s Erin’s status in all this?

Chris Roberts: He’s still on the Xbox title so he’ll be staying with Digital Anvil.

Next up was Gamespot with an article that basically summed up the first interview from PC.IGN.com but a few morsels were sprinkled in as to what exactly Chris has for plans in his future. The link and the nibbly morsel.

Chris Roberts will continue to work closely with the development teams and Microsoft and Digital Anvil to ensure that FreeLancer achieves the goals he originally had envisioned for it. Roberts made it clear that he is leaving Digital Anvil of his own free will; he stated that he had no desire to be part of a large organization, and cited his similar decision to leave Electronic Arts nearly five years ago. Roberts will most likely continue to pursue game development in some form, although he's expressed his interest to work in film and exploit broadband technology to us recently.
