The lights are on
People Can Fly's Adrian Chmielarz, creative director on Gears of War: Judgment, has left the studio along with two other members of the People Can Fly team. Epic Games president Mike Capps offered the fallowing statement on the departure:
"Adrian Chmielarz, Andrzej Poznanski and Michal Kosieradzki have parted ways with People Can Fly and Epic Games in order to pursue other opportunities, which they will announce of their own accord. Over the past decade, they have been instrumental in building People Can Fly into the talented team that it is today. We wish them well in their future endeavors. People Can Fly remains excited to release Gears of War: Judgment to fans early next year."
After the announcement, Chmielarz went to Twitter to reassure Gears fans that Judgment is in good hands, and that more information about his next project will be revealed soon.
As part of our Gears of War: Judgment coverage in July, we interviewed Adrian Chmielarz and he spoke about the kinds of games he wants to make, which may provide some insight into what he's working on next. Check out the video below.
