Thursday 2nd August 2012 - Gateshead, UK - Eutechnyx, one of the world’s leading independent game developers and the team behind racing game and car community Auto Club Revolution has today announced a top tier addition to its team. Hugely experienced online game executive producer, Christoph Vietzke joins to lead the development team as it enters its next phase.

CEO Brian Jobling said, “The team has worked extremely hard for five years to realise the dream of a racing game and car community delivering unrivalled quality in the free to play space.  The addition of Christoph gives the team additional momentum as we begin the rollout for the next evolution of Auto Club Revolution. His track record working on titles like Runescape will be invaluable for our growth as we add more social and community features”.

Vietzke studied in his home country of Germany and in the UK. He moved permanently to the UK in 2005 to join game maker Jagex, where his roles over seven years spanned quality assurance, testing, localisation, production, community management and customer support before progressing to the role of Head of Runescape.

Christoph Vietzke said, “The world of casual, social and online games has changed hugely since my first role in the sector. Compelling new concepts like Auto Club Revolution don’t come along very often and I believe that this blend of goose bump inducing racing combined with a rich and engaging social experience is eventually how all games will be. I’m thrilled to be on the team and to be part of the future success”.
