He hasn’t been part of the organization chart for a few days. Glen Schofield, what we could call the so-called “image man” of the first Dead Space and who helped found Visceral Studio, has left his position as CEO at Striking Distancethe studio that realized its vision of a “spiritual heir” to Dead Space: The Callisto Protocol.
Resigned. Glen Schofield says goodbye to the studio
The confirmation came from some representatives of Krafton, the parent company of Striking Distance and publisher of The Callisto Protocol. Reported on Bloomberg, Krafton’s statements portray the separation as consensual: SChofield wants to seek new opportunities elsewhere, the releases say. The CEO position will be filled by Steve Papoutsiscurrent Chief Development Officer.
The reasons for the departure were not clarified. It does not appear that these are linked to any disappointments resulting from the sales results of The Callisto Protocol. The data, updated in January 2023, tells of around 2 million copies in circulation, far below the 5 million that Krafton expected to place. A number that analysts have defined as optimistic. Probable artistic differences. About The Callisto Protocol: we tested and reviewed the game as it approaches its release at the end of 2022.
