State of Decay developer hires ArenaNet co-founder Patrick Wyatt

State of Decay developer Undead Labs has announced it's hired ArenaNet's Patrick Wyatt.


Wyatt and Undead Lab's founder Jeff Strain both were co-creaters and founders of Guild Wars and ArenaNet, respectively.

Before Wyatt helped found ArenaNet, he was VP of research and development at Blizzard Entertainment as well as a senior programmer who lead the charge with Battle.net programming.

He also had a hand in the multiplayer aspects of Diablom, StarCraft, Diablo and Warcraft 2: Tides of Darkness.

In 2010, Wyatt became COO for En Masse Entertainment, which developed the title TERA.

Undead Labs has been working on an MMO dubbed Class 4 which is said to tie into State of Decay which was at one time known as Class 3.
