And another one bites the dust… News has just broke that longtime Rare veteran George Andreas has resigned from Rare and is now the Creative Director of Sony Computer Entertainment of Europe (SCEE). Here’s an excerpt of the story…

During his 16 years at Rare he worked on most of the legendary studio’s games, including various Banjo titles, Viva Pinata and, going back to Rare’s Nintendo years, Donkey Kong 64, GoldenEye and Killer Instinct Gold.

  1. It’s always a bummer to hear that another employee has left the studio. Andreas’ work is definitely to be commended, given the work that he put into some of my favorite Rare titles.

    If nothing else, it sounds like he’s in a fairly solid position SCEE’s Creative Director. I wish him the best of luck.
