David Polfeldt, the head of Ubisoft Huge, the studio behind The Division 2, Character: Frontiers of Pandora, as well as Ubisoft‘ s upcoming Celebrity Wars game, is stepping down from his duty as the studio’s handling supervisor. Polfeldt introduced that he was leaving the workshop in a blog post on the workshop’s web site.
” Seventeen years ago I joined a small Malmö-based indie-studio in a duty that the creator defined as ‘Mister FixIt’. Little did I recognize what a roller-coaster experience it would come to be!” Polfeldt created in the article.
” When we authorized Celebrity Wars, as well as lastly finished our beautiful structure Eden in 2020, I really felt a frustrating feeling of completion, as if I had actually accomplished whatever I as soon as desired for. Depending on the strong foundation of The Department, Avatar, Snowdrop, and Ubisoft Connect, the studio remains in wonderful form, and I am incredibly thankful of what we have actually completed together. Before I start a brand-new experience in Ubisoft, I will certainly try another thing which is new and exciting to me: a lengthy break! Dream me luck, as well as see you in 2022.”
Given that Polfeldt has been with the workshop for 17 years and worked as its managing supervisor for 12 of them, the rest sounds well-earned. Polfeldt will take a six-month sabbatical beginning on July 1st. After that, he will certainly return to Ubisoft in a brand-new strategic duty. According to a Ubisoft spokesperson that consulted with Axios, Ubisoft has “already appointed David’s follower and eagerly anticipate sharing even more information at a later date”.
