Industry veteran Peter Johnson has joined Gateshead studio Eutechnyx as excecutive producer.
Johnson has spent 25 years in the industry, including a five-year stint as studio head of Venom Games. Eutechnyx new hire is due to oversee the development of Eutechnyx’ ‘next generation character-based games’.
“Eutechnyx’ driving technology is recognised as among the best in the world,” said Johnson, “My primary role is to build upon that vehicle-based know-how in order to broaden the scope of the games we’re producing. Our goal is to become not only the world leader in vehicle simulations but also a world leader in the development of character-based games.”
“Peter is a great addition to the company and we’re really happy to have him join our team,” added Eutechnyx managing director Brian Jobling. “He brings a wealth of experience with him. Peter’s attitude and knowledge complements what we’re doing and we feel fortunate in having him contribute to the exciting projects we have in the pipeline.”
