It was quite a surprising turn of events last week when Seth Killian announced that he would be leaving his role as Capcom’s strategic marketing director of online and community. At the time he did not reveal where he would be going or if his next role would even place him in the video game business.
Well today it was revealed at the PlayStation Blog that Seth Killian will be taking up a roll as lead game designer at Sony Santa Monica. He will begin working on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and with a number of other studios. Killian stated on the blog that “Fighting games are very close to my heart, and as someone that’s spent much of my life with traditional fighters, All-Stars has been a great opportunity to take a step back and rethink fighting fundamentals from the ground up.”
