Online games guru to be key attendee at July event

Garriott to be Guest of Honour at Develop Awards

Richard Garriott, the creator of the Ultima series and currently executive producer on NCsoft’s Tabula Rasa will be attending the Develop Industry Excellence Awards as our special guest of honour.

Garriott (pictured) has constantly pioneered in the online space, and is therefore a perfect fit for an event that awards the business and creative pioneers from the European development industry in the past year.

“I am really excited about my visit to Brighton, which is also the home of NCsoft Europe,” said Garriott, who will be conducting a keynote at the accompanying Develop conference as well.

“There are so many outstanding people who make up the development teams nominated and I am so pleased that such awards exist to recognise them.”

NCsoft is also Gold Partner for the Awards, joined by ‘Codemasters – powered by Neon’, which is Platinum Partner. Click here more details on the Develop awards.
