Maxis founder Will Wright will make a special appearance at this year’s GameHorizon event in Newcastle which takes place May 8-9.
The Maxis founder and SimCity creator will field questions from the audience about his long career, which spans a long history under EA’s mighty wing, and later years working among entertainment think-tanks. GameHorizon will see Wright join the audience via live video link.
Meanwhile, Wright has heaped praise on the recently released SimCity reboot, despite its crippling server woes. See what he had to say about it here:
The event will also feature a keynote from Massive Entertainment head David Polfeldt, who will speak alongside Ubisoft Reflections’ Pauline Jacquey in a chat labelled ‘The fearless creation of the million dollar game.’ Jacquey’s team is currently c-developing Watch Dogs, so this could be one to look out for.
