It's a season of change over at Dark Age of Camelot
, as the team is transitioning from former producer Talal Saad
to the new one, John Thornhill
Saad said that he's not leaving the studio, but moving into a role that oversees more than just one game. "Rather than serving at the helm of one particular game, my responsibility will be to act as advocate and to use my time and energy to focus on how Broadsword can have a bigger impact, provide more investment, and achieve greater success for multiple products," he wrote.
Thornhill introduced himself as the former lead designer for DAoC
and outlined what the team would be focusing on for the future. He said that there are plans for the game's 13th anniversary (including new race and class pairings), the release of patch 1.116 around the end of November, the increase to champion level 15, an addition of a casual group finder, and more interaction with the community.
"Our focus is going to be updating and modernizing the user experience of Dark Age of Camelot
for the foreseeable future," Thornhill promised.
