As you already may know, today is my last day with Ubisoft. Starting 15 June, I'll be working with a developer in Maryland to work on some non-game projects that capitalize on my previous experience. I'm very excited about this and will be working with some old friends.
Although I have a great, new project to produce in Ubisoft; I really like San Francisco; and that I believe Ubisoft is a good (not perfect) publisher/developer; it's time for me to move on in order to start a family and have more of my life back. The past few years have been difficult to say the least.
Although I have no plans or desire to produce a combat flight sim again, I'll always love this genre and help to improve it in not so visible ways. I'm sure I'll be conversing with many of you in the years to come.
Thank you for the many kind messages. Although I'm sorry that Lock On could not make everyone happy nor meet every expectation, it's nice to hear that so many people have found enjoyment in the game. I'm personally very proud of the project and look forward to where it may lead. I wish my friends at Eagle Dynamics the very best in all their future projects.
Take care and have fun,
Matt "Wags" Wagner
Producer / Ubisoft
