Kotaku editor Brian Crecente has confirmed he’s to leave the site. Crecente had been with the US blog for seven years, and makes no mention of what he’s to do next. Stephen Totilo, previously of MTV and Kotaku’s deputy editor, will assume the role of editor-in-chief. Crecente is the latest in a string of senior US games journalists to move on, following resignations from Joystiq’s Chris Grant and McElroy brothers – Griffin and Justin – over the Christmas break. The three are rumoured to be setting up a new “gaming vertical” for Vox.
