Almost five years to the day after joining id Software, level designer Paul Jaquays has updated his .plan one last time with the sad news that he\'s leaving our favorite FPS-making company. Here\'s part of his message:
After five years of making first person shooters like Quake2, Quake III Arena, and Quake III: Team Arena, I’ve come to the realization that my heart just isn’t in it any more. For this reason, I’ve decided to make a slight shift in career direction and seek other design and development challenges. I have accepted a position with Ensemble Studios (the creators of the Age of Empires series and Age of Mythology) here in Dallas, and will be taking up my new duties with them in short order. I’m excited about the new job and I understand that the entire team there is excited to have me come on board.Hmm, isn\'t Ensemble where Sandy Petersen works? In any event, let\'s all give a big farewell to Paul Jaquays and thank him for his five years of hard work. Thanks Mormegil.
