Former Jagex man Christoph Vietzke on board at Auto Club Revolution studio
Eutechnyx has hired online game executive producer Christoph Vietzke, who will serve as the studio's development team lead.
Previously serving at MMO outfit Jagex for seven years and eventually assuming the role of Head of RuneScape, Vietzke brings experience in quality assurance, testing, localisation, production, community management and customer support to Eutechnyx.
“The team has worked extremely hard for five years to realise the dream of a racing game and car community delivering unrivalled quality in the free to play space," said Eutechnyx CEO Brian Jobling.
"The addition of Christoph gives the team additional momentum as we begin the rollout for the next evolution of Auto Club Revolution. His track record working on titles like Runescape will be invaluable for our growth as we add more social and community features."
Eutechnyx's online social racing game Auto Club Revolution, which is being created in collaboration with the motor industry, is currently the studio's lead project.
“The world of casual, social and online games has changed hugely since my first role in the sector," stated Vietzke. "Compelling new concepts like Auto Club Revolution don’t come along very often and I believe that this blend of goose bump inducing racing combined with a rich and engaging social experience is eventually how all games will be. I’m thrilled to be on the team and to be part of the future success”.
