Suprised to see an update come across today, but Travis Steiner, Lead Designer at Zipper Interactive for Socom 4 changed his Facebook Status today. He is now with a startup. We can only assume that it is with a gaming community, Travis is sure to bring some great experience to the table. His work history also includes Sierra Entertainment working on one of my favorite PC games growing up, Police Quest: SWAT. Good luck Travis.
I emailed Travis and received this auto reply:
I have decided to leave Zipper to pursue a new opportunity. If you need to contact me, you can find me on Facebook.
This comes as bit of a shock less than a week after the release of Socom 4 though. There have been mixed feelings amoungs Socom veterans about the game. Many are just not liking it, while many say if a few things are fixed it will be great and then there are the many that are very happy with Socom 4.
We do agree there are a few things to tweak, but overall, the Urgent Fury community is once again addicted to another Socom release.
Now if we can only get PSN up and running, we can get back to playing the Shooter that started it all on consoles.
