Della Rocca quits IGDA

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 3 February 2009 06:39 GMT


Jason Della Rocca is leaving his role as the executive director of the International Game Developers Association, he’s confirmed on his blog, to pursue a new venture.

Della Rocca’s headed up the organisation for nine years.

“Given the maturation and evolution of the IGDA, I’m not sure if I’m actually the ‘right guy’ anymore,” he said.

“While I believe that my particular skills and strengths suited the needs of the IGDA along the way, the org has grown to the point where different styles of leadership should probably be explored.”

No news on what his new ‘thing’ is, but he’s definitely “not starting a game development studio.”
