Thread: A big thanks to you all!

  1. #16
    I don't think it's much of a surprise, but it will certainly give the new project the best start it can have!

    I'd like to say a massive thank you for everything you've done for this game, for being so welcoming and forthcoming (even if ridiculously cryptic) with answers to our questions. You will be a great loss to the Canonn thread and I certainly hope you will keep stopping by.

    I'm still playing the game, so will be keeping track of what's happening :-)

    I’ve worked at Frontier now for over 14 years, and in that time I’ve had the pleasure on working on a diverse range of projects. In fact of all the games we’ve released in that time there’s only three I’ve not worked on in some capacity! The most significant of which was Elite Dangerous. Since becoming involved in the Kickstarter, and the subsequent development it’s been a major factor not only in my professional life, but in my social one as well. As with any multi-project company people occasionally move between games, and it’s with great pleasure (and some sadness) that I can let you know that I’m moving onto the secret project we announced a few months ago. It’s a fantastic opportunity, and another game I’m proud to be involved with. While I will miss not being so closely involved in Elite, I’ll still be playing the game regularly and participating in the community where I can – I’m currently making my way to Colonia in my Imperial Courier :-)

    I should emphasise that this doesn’t affect Elite’s future. Development will continue with its large and active development team. The production team remains exactly the same with a new addition to the production team and they’re all a more than capable crew, and of course David remains a key decision maker for the game. I’m looking forward to 2.4’s release – there’s some very cool stuff in there! And that is nothing compared to what lies further in the future.

    I’d also like to thank the community for your involvement. Since the game was first announced it’s been a pleasure to join you in a shared enthusiasm. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of you in person, and it’s always a great feeling to appreciate the passion that you have for the game. I think the first Lavecon will always stand out as a key moment, but there have been many others since the game’s release, and it’s always great to see some of the things like epic rescues and community events that take place in our galaxy. I will be attending Lavecon again this year as a fan of Elite and to meet with old friends and the fantastic community. Naturally I’ll keep an eye on the forums and pop in from time to time!

    So thanks to you all, and I may see you in the black...

    Sad to see you go, you will be missed. Even if you are not technically entirely gone. :)

    We'll miss you Micheal. Your vision, as laid out in Legacy, is what I hoped would guide the development.

    Who is taking over as executive producer?

    Thanks for everything you've done for this fabulous game. Very much appreciated Michael [yesnod]

    Good luck with Project-X and have fun :)

    Best of luck! We'll miss the enthusiasm, the knowledge of things astronomical, the beard (NOT the axe, that was scary).

    Wish you well with the new project. Can we get involved as kickstarters or something? At least let us know.. wait. Did you say an IMPERIAL ship? On yer bike ya Imperial scum.

    p.s. Can it be a coincidence that you're leaving just weeks/months before the Aliens arrive? I'm not saying you're turning brave Sir Robin... but are they that bad?

    MB fleeing to Colonia just as the Thargoids arrive!! That isn't a good sign for those of us in Red Shirts left behind!!

    On a more serious note, THANKS SO MUCH for all your time and effort that's gone toward ED. You'll truly be missed!! Best Wishes for a continued wonderful career.

    May the speculation commence!

    Maybe it's the Mistress Of Minions? :D

    Really sad to see you (and your brief replies!) moving on to pastures new but a huge thanks for your direction of ED over the years.

    I did suspect something when I recently started seeing your doppelgänger on my lunchtime walks from my office in Bristol - him and a Jeremy Corbyn lookalike wearing a Corbyn t-shirt on election day (I jest not!)
