Wizard101: Coleman Leaving KingsIsle

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,588MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

J. Todd Coleman has announced that he is leaving KingsIsle to pursue other "entrepreneurial" options. Coleman has been with KingsIsle since its founding and was the co-creator of both Pirate101 and Wizard101.

While Todd’s presence in the organization will certainly be missed, Josef Hall, also co-creator of both games, will remain at KingsIsle and take on additional responsibilities. As for KingsIsle, we have a clear roadmap of exciting world and system updates for Wizard101 and Pirate101 over the next several years. Additionally, we have multiple unannounced projects underway that we believe will further establish KingsIsle as a leader in the online family entertainment space.

From Coleman's farewell letter:

What is next for me? I’m a storyteller, so I will keep doing what I do best – dream up ideas, breathe life into characters, build worlds for you to explore… only next time, I want to do it for myself. I’m an entrepreneur at heart. A new company, a new game, a new story… I’m not ready to say, but when I’ve got something to show, you guys will be the first to know.

    This is bittersweet news for all wizards and pirates in the spiral.  Mr. Coleman will be greatly missed by all, but I am positive his creative mind will stay with us in future endeavours and I look forward to whatever he has in store for us. He  is such a huge part of the community and I thank him for all he has done for us. And all he will do in the future.  Goodluck to you Headmaster Ambrose.

    Well this is a bad sign when one of the co-creators of  wizard101/pirates101 is jumping ship. Hopefully this isn't the first sign that there is something seriously wrong within the company. This has happened to so many companies when they become super successful.

    NOOOOOOO dont leave us. I know its time for you to move on now, kinda like a retirement. But always remember what you have done for this game and I hope you're reading this message.  You and others have made a game that millions have enjoyed now. Thank you Todd Coleman. You will live on in my heart.
