Madison, Wisconsin-based Human Head Studios (Rune, Prey) confirms to Next-Gen that chairman and CEO Tim Gerritsen has left the company after almost nine years.
Human Head community liaison and writer Jason L Blair [side note: his middle name is actually "L"] said in a phone interview that Gerritsen quietly left the independent developer in November 2006. Human Head formed in 1997, and Gerritsen joined shortly after in 1998.
Blair didn't get into specifics regarding why Gerritsen left, but said simply that the ex-CEO felt that "it was time to move on." He described the break as amicable and that "there are no hard feelings at all between the owners [of Human Head] and Tim."
