Bioshock 2 creative director quits to form indie studio

From gamespot:
The creative director of BioShock 2, Jordan Thomas, has left 2K Marin after more than five years with the developer.

Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Jordan Thomas revealed that a few key moments during the development of BioShock Infinite inspired him to branch out on his own. (BioShock 2, Industry, Jordan Thomas, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

"I need to build something that is, to me, what BioShock is to Ken. No matter how long it takes, I have to start now."

When I think about it, I realize that was he says is really relevant. Whenever you hear the name Bioshock, you hear Ken Levine, as if he was the one and only who worked on it. Don't get me wrong, the guy is a genious and Bioshock is so good mainly thanks to him, but it must be hard to be a 2K developer and basically live and work in his shadow.

Anyway, I wish him well in his new studio and look forward to seeing what he will come up with.

This sounds exciting. While Bioshock 2 isn't the greatest game in the series, it still worked well, and captured a lot of what made the first Bioshock great. It will be interesting to see what he can do alone.
