Well, the official word from Sony Online Entertainment is "After many years of service with SOE, Alan "Brenlo" Crosby has moved on to other opportunities. And while it is sad to see him leave, we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavors. At this time, we'd like to take a moment to announce EverQuest II's new producer, Dave "Avatar" Georgenson. Dave is excited to join the EQII Team and will be posting an introduction in the near future."
We spoke to Alan as well, and he told us "Yeah after working together for 10 years, it was my time to move on. Was a great ride and I am going to miss my SOE family."
We at Massively wish Alan the best of luck!
