I care, if a studio picks him up they will have some great talent in their pockets. If I remember correctly, he was one of the designers on the first splinter cell and Chaos theory.

Yes there were alot of problems with far cry 2, but it was still an enjoyable game... 8)

Well considering he had shipped 3 games with an average for them of over 90% I would say he was fairly important.

Ok Far Cry 2 wasn't brilliant but it had some good moments. Enough of a basis to make a decent sequel if they improved on the bad parts.

Well good luck to him anyway I imagine from his post it looks like he will be going somewhere with a whole new challenge.

far cry 2 was a good game but was full of bugs presumably due to a rushed release. i don't really have a point to this, i just felt the need to type something.
