Publisher Team 17 has suffered a tragic loss. Associate producer James Light, who worked on the World War II shooter Hell Let Loose, has died at the age of 28. He passed away on June 18, 2022 due to complications after heart surgery. Now his colleagues have left an obituary and publicly said goodbye to James Light.
An unexpected and serious loss
“It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of our beloved colleague James Light. James passed away on June 18 at the age of 28 as a result of complications following heart surgery. His death came as a surprise and deeply saddened everyone who knew him official statement.
The developers also wrote: “James started his career in video games in 2018 – he worked in the Team 17 QA department on Hell Let Loose. Over the past four years his incredible work ethic, humility and constant kindness have made him a pleasure to work with. He’s certainly one of the reasons Hell Let Loose is where it is today.”
Furthermore, James always praised the efforts of other employees, even when he was extremely effective himself. His accomplishments saw him promoted to a production assistant before rising to the producer role a few months ago, overseeing the shooter’s full PC development. As a result, he knew every little aspect of the game.
“As a team, we’ve thought long and hard about sharing his passing with the community, and we felt — with his family’s permission — that’s what he would have wanted. As much as this is a keepsake, it is also a celebration of our colleague and friend who made such an indelible impression on the game that many have enjoyed for hundreds or even thousands of hours. More importantly, he made the same impression on us. We will miss him immensely, ”the developers finally said.
