From FiringSquad comes word that Timothy Gerritsen, CEO of Human Head Studios, has left the company. Through a phone interview, the site has learned that he had left before Thanksgiving and that his departure was ‘amicable’; he also said that his portion of the ownership of the company will be sold. The reason behind his departure can be attributed to the fact that the other owners wanted to take the company in a different direction than Gerritsen wanted. Human Head co-founder and President Paul MacArthur is now the company’s CEO.
The studio has released quite a few action titles, starting with Rune (2000), which was followed by Dead Man’s Hand (2004) and, most recently, Prey (2006). No new projects have been announced yet, though it is known that Prey 2 is in the pipeline.
Over on 3D Realms is the tenth development diary for Prey, which talks about a variety of topics, including word that Hollywood animator Eric Weiss has joined the team to finish the game.
