According to this Variety report, former Brash chief creative office and CAA games agent Larry Shapiro has become the president of Oddworld Inhabitants.

Lorne Lanning’s developer is known to be working on a new Oddworld game – about which nothing is known yet – and the move will be seen as a sign that things are genuinely starting to happen.

“No one is more in stride with us than Larry. We both see the same future landscape,” Lanning said.

“It’s a petty radical departure from the contemporary landscape. While we think there’s a number of barriers to break through, we think there are tremendous opportunities on the other side of the barrier.”

More through there.
