Arkane Studio Head Departs, Seeking New Challenges

Romuald Capron, the head of Deathloop studio Arkane Lyon, announced his departure from the company after working there for almost 17 years.

Capron made the announcement on LinkedIn (first spotted by Video Games Chronicle) where he said he wants to spend more time with his family and also wants to "try something new."

His statement reads:

I’m letting the studio in very good hands, under the leadership of [game director and co-creative director] Dinga Bakaba, (art director and co-creative director) Sebastien Mitton, (technical director) Hugues Tardif, and (executive producer) Morgan Barbe, who – I’m sure – will keep on pushing ambitious and innovative projects.

Capron continued:

“As for my own future, my goal is to keep on helping video game companies, and others, to make their creative vision become a reality since that’s what I love to do. Stay tuned…”

Capron left the company just weeks after Deathloop's successful release in September. It was an ambitious game and one who's risks paid off. We called it a sleek, iconic game and one of Arkane's best yet in our Deathloop review.
