Pipeworks studio head resigns over Green Beret misrepresentation

In the oddest gaming story you're likely to read today, the head of Pipeworks Studios resigned today after apparently misrepresenting himself as a US Special Forces soldier in the past.Robert Daly who formerly headed Pipeworks and was an expert on the television show Deadliest Warrior said that he regretted misleading people into thinking he was a member of the Green Berets.

"I utterly regret that I have misrepresented my role by creating the impression that I was a 'Green Beret,'" wrote Daly on a website called Professionalsoldiers.com, which is dedicated to former special forces soldiers.

Pipeworks was the studio behind the 2010 Deadliest Warrior downloadable game on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

"I am honored to have served with the 12th Special Forces Group as an Intelligence Analyst (96B) from 1991 until 1994. While I wore the green beret as part of my uniform, I utterly regret that I have misrepresented my role by creating the impression that I was a “Green Beret.” I have nothing but the utmost respect for the Green Berets and my fellow servicemen, and I respectfully apologize to the Special Forces community.

"At this point in time for the best interests of Pipeworks Software and [Foundation 9 Entertainment] I am voluntarily resigning my position of Studio Head of Pipeworks effective immediately. Furthermore I have no plans on appearing in any more episodes of Deadliest Warrior."

Thanks, Industry Gamers!
