players will probably be familiar with the name Smokejumper
, the forum handle of the EverQuest
franchise's Executive Producer Dave Georgeson. Georgeson has served as Executive Producer for EverQuest
, EverQuest II
, and the upcoming EverQuest Next
while simultaneously filling the role of Producer for EverQuest II
. As you might imagine, that's quite a lot of work for a single person. With that in mind, Georgeson announced on the official EQII
website today that Holly "Windstalker
" Longdale has rejoined SOE
in order to take over the position of EverQuest II
Holly also takes the opportunity to introduce herself to the community, remarking that "the opportunity to be a producer on this team is surreal and certainly perfect." She goes on to say that "EverQuest...
has had a place in [her] life for well over a decade now," making it clear that she's not just some corporate suit who doesn't care about the game -- she's a player who is passionate about the game and is in-tune with the playerbase.
