First The Division community Q&A video released ahead of E3

June 12, 2015 | News

In anticipation of E3, Massive released the first ever community Q&A video for The Division. Presented by community developer Hamish Bode, it features questions asked by members of the community in video form, which are then answered by developers from Massive in this video.

In this first episode, which you can watch here on Ubisoft’s YouTube channel, we talk about loot, character customization and, of course, closing those car doors. Because the loot question was asked by fellow Dutchman and community superstar MarcoStyle, I briefly got to say hi to him in Dutch at around 1 minute and 25 seconds into the video. Of course, it needed subtitles for the rest of the world.

Leaving Vanguard Games, joining Ubisoft Massive

April 26, 2014 | News

After working at Vanguard Games for almost seven years, half of which was while it was still called W!Games, I am leaving the company. This week, I sent out the same type of e-mail I’ve been reading every time a former colleague announced his departure and I’m having mixed feelings about the upcoming goodbye gathering and speech, to be held on my last day of work at Vanguard.

I’m incredibly proud of the games we’ve been making together at Vanguard and I’ve worked with a lot of talented people there, some of which have become good friends. Being hired by what was then still W!Games was a turning point in my life, both professionally and personally, and it has been a great start of my career in the game development industry. I have to admit that I’ve been keeping an eye out for something new for quite some time, because I’ve always wanted to work abroad and also experience working at another studio. Starting and finishing Halo: Spartan Assault was very important to me and wrapping that up was a good moment for me to actually make a switch. So what am I going to do now?
