Griffis responded to his departure on the game forums stating: “I will be leaving if a few weeks for a new opportunity. That’s pretty much all of it. It has nothing to do with PvP, STO, or Cryptic. It’s just time for me to do something different. I had planned on telling everyone on the forums at some point, but probably closer to when I was actually leaving (I’ll be here for a few more weeks).” The MMO’s PvP will be handed off to another developer he said. Griffis previously left Cryptic in 2010 but returned after a short while.
