IGN: Will Wright Leaving Maxis

Electronic Arts announced today that, after twenty years, Will Wright is leaving Maxis to run Stupid Fun Club.

This morning IGN had the opportunity to speak with Maxis VP and General Manager Lucy Bradshaw about the transition and its potential impact on Maxis, EA and The Sims and Spore franchises. She repeatedly stressed that this new arrangement is not a radical change but merely an "evolution" of the existing relationship between Will Wright and Electronic Arts. Still, with Will Wright being among the most innovative, and certainly the most recognized, designers associated with the brands he helped to create, it will be interesting to see where The Sims and Spore titles go from here.

The story is too old to be commented.
