The lights are on
Electronic Arts is bulking up the team behind the Dead Space franchise.
Arjan Brussee, who co-founded Guerrilla Games in 2003, has left the company to take an executive producer position at Visceral Games, according to a report from Control-Online. He was previously the executive producer on all three Killzone titles.
He began his career as a lead programmer at Epic Games working on Jazz Jackrabbit.
"It has been a great ride. Every year there was something ambitious, new and inspiring to put my energy into," he said. "For me, I now want to find a new personal challenge, which I hope to find at EA, and who knows where this will take me next."

Dead Space 3 cover story this year. DO IT.
this is kinda cool
"iiiiiiiiisaaac......it's not over isssaacc."
Yeah totally wondering what this means for Killzone 4. I get the man's need for a change and I see no harm in infusing the KZ franchise with a little fresh blood.
But I was already worried they would push KZ4 back for a simultanious release with the PlayStation 4 (which would suck)...now I am really worried.
Does this guy have any exsperience with horror games? I know Guerrilla Games makes the Killzone series, so I'm a little worried about even more action being added to the series.
EA did say they wanted to make a Dead Space FPS. Getting someone experienced in that genre will help them do that, although I'm not really sure if people even want a Dead Space FPS.
Interesting, may be shooter elements coming to Dead Space 3?
Yay... maybe Killzone won't suck now. So much wasted potential there...
Cool, lets see what happens.
He did fantastic work on the Killzone franchise, and I hope that he continues that trend while working at EA. I can't wait to see what he does with the almost inevitable Dead Space 3.
Hmmm Interesting this can't be good for GG
