    Godspeed and may the winds be at your backs, my good sir. It's been a pleasure reading your stuff.

    It says so in the first post :p
    Hopefully subsequent Lavecons as well.

    Good luck with the new project. I can't wait to see what it is

    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...

    Michael

    A big thank you to your personal involvement in the Unknown mysteries and the patience with the nutters in the Canonn community.
    Thanks for all the moments you've made memorable for us.
    And a BIG Good Luck with your next project.

    Fly safe, if it's ever possible to do so out there. o7

    This is a good move. Win Win. You are talented and dedicated and can be used elsewhere. But ED needs a real shot in the arm with some fresh blood to look at this and stimulate things.

    Secret project?! Elite V, perhaps? ;) :D

    Good luck Michael! :)

    Soon...!?!?! You dreadful man! ;)

    So pleased you've got the opportunity to move to the new project! I am sure that its success is now assured with your involvement. We shall certainly miss your day to day E : D involvement but on the upside we won't have to put up with your non-answers at conventions anymore ;) :D

    Wishing you continued success, see you this weekend of course and hopefully at other times too :)

    PS : Alvin says Woof woof, arf, woof woof... (Loosely translated as 'Before you go can you ensure that the Alvin Bobblehead makes it in game this year to help celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the founding of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and perhaps allow proceeds from sales to go in their direction'... I did say it was loosely translated!) ;) :D

    Interesting.. the Planet Coaster work could be a great basis for it.
