After his work on the first three Killzone games, Xavier Marquis has quit Guerrilla Games and to join the team at Ubisoft.
he did a good job on the game.
Look at this: http://www.xavier-marquis.c... I wonder what he is gonna do at Ubisoft.
That is pretty good.
^lol... I agree...
man they lost a good one what are they going to do now.
cancel the game. its over. just give up. what else can they do?
Did you even read the link? If not it says it looks like he didn't do much at all in the new Killzone game. I don't think this loss will hurt the game at all. Nobody is dependent on one artist in gaming.
The art design has all been done for this game, its mainly down to the programming now. he's found another opportunity to move forward in his career and good on him. With a mix up of artists working with different companies, the games should come out looking a little different...ya never know, maybe he will make the Ubisoft games look better.
i would like to have his job. sony!!
I was not aware Kill Zone 2 was going to include E.T for the Atari 2600... are they? If not what would they have you doing? Sorry.. couldn't help it... I'm just kidding...
he was or is an artist, im an artist(kind of) not a programer or the designer so everithing should work ok.
concept art is usually much better than the finished product.. it allows for imagination to take free reign while the final product has lots of constrictions its a shame to see him go. that image posted above is pretty cool.
who gives a crap they can always find a new guy
Agree. He is obviously talented, however there are definitely lots of talented artists out there.
no but he was good
He was good, but not great. The artwork itself is very nice, but I think his ideas are often a little stale to be honest. I mean, I can't help but think "Combine" when I see some of the Killzone concept art. The gameplay is going to be fantastic, and I'm sure they'll really bring this stuff to life in-game, but a little breath of fresh air might be a good thing.
When will people learn? It's "could've", not "could of". Jesus, I fear for our future. *EDIT* Thanks to those responsible for my 6th bubble. It's much appreciated.
its poorly translated though isn't it?...there are all kinds of mistakes in that little write-up... and yes...Could HAVE...or Could've...not as bad as 'I no you are an idiot'...or 'your ghey'...but whatever...
There were 3 Killzones?
Yes. Killzone 1, Killzone 2, and Killzone: Liberation for PSP
Nooo :( Damn you ubi
Wtf? There was a killzone 2? Edit: Nvm I'm stupid haha. Does this mean Killzone 2 is finish then? Since the article says "AFTER" his work on the three Killzone game. If it's true then Killzone is probably in the polishing phase. I guess we'll be seeing it sooner rather than later.
or after...the first two? but before the third? besides, a concept artist is usually when a game is just beginning. do you really think they need a great concept artist if KZ2 is suppose to be finished this mid/late year?
By saying "after his work on...." it merely means he has worked on the games. Doesn't say very much about the games at all, except that some work has been put into them by this man.
Strange how people try to make it look like a bad thing. The title could have just said "Killzone artists resign's from Sony, and Joins Ubisoft" The thing is, concept artists are plentiful in the video game industry though.
Concept artists main job is like story boards right so once the games in production there jobs pretty much done.
Could well be, that they have no need for a concept artist any more. I'd guess they are wrapping up the game now, and I can't imagine, they are going into the concept for the next in a while. But maybe not.
he's quite the artist... i hope the future artist for Killzone can do as well has him
"Update: He had a limited influence on the game (we think that could’ve one of the reason that he may have lefted his job)." No big deal at all... Btw, the way the picture is cropped is really disturbing
I was going to mention that crop too. They butchered Templar.
hopefully they can get Shirow Masamune next. :)
I hope you're not being too serious. As nice some Anime can be I'd hate to see a world where there was nothing but it.
ummm he was good i but what can you do he quit for his reasons and thats that there are more people out there that may even be better so we'll just have to wait and see who they get next..
"So now I'm back in France since the 3rd of september 2007 to work as concept designer for Ubisoft." The guy has been gone since September. I'm sure he was replaced a long time ago. I think he went to Ubi so he could be in France again, that's where he was born.
seriously they all saw it coming, the guy was going to leave GUERILLA GAMES as soon as killzone ended up sucking.....rofl... got to admit that killzone was a bad game, its one of the worst games i've ever played. oh and on top of that, UBI SOFT is great talent I hope to see maxi working on rainbow six vegas and makes it 360 exclusive online......they are the bomb, UBI is one of the best western developers ever created and sony just suck so much, they didn't even pay him a compensation when he quit......thats good for the boys at UBISOFT though, now we can see some real AAA titles
He's just an artist.
artist art the base for every game
Haha this is BOLLOCKS. He moves between jobs and always has. What a bunch of retards making this bullshit story.
greenenvy are you 10 or mentally retarded.. I guess we never know.
he left cause he didnt get to contribute to the game and its understanding but sony didnt lose anything, they have lots of artists and who not. its probably will be better for his carrier to move somewhere lower scale company so his art will be appreciated more. So good luck to him!
This is what happens when you work for Sony.
Let me guess,you think Microsoft is one big happy family?;)
Yawn 1 little 'Artist' quit. Big woop. Bungie left MS any worse?
^ haha brilliant
