Linden Lab CEO Rod Humble departs Second Life developer

Linden Lab CEO Rod Humble has parted ways with the Second Life developer. Humble, who had been with Linden Labs for three years, announced his departure on Facebook last week, GamesIndustry International reports.

"It's been a great 3 years! All my thanks to my colleagues at Linden Lab and our wonderful customers I wish you the very best for the future and continued success!" Humble's post revealed he would be exiting the company to start a new operation focused on making "Art, Entertainment and unusual things." After three years working on Second Life, we're terrified as to what Humble's idea of what an "unusual thing" may be.

Humble was the Executive Vice President of the EA Play label at Electronic Arts, prior to his stint with San Francisco-based developer Linden Labs. Humble worked on such games as The Sims 3 and, while at Sony Online, EverQuest.
