Developer-publisher 38 Studios has announced the appointment of former Electronic Arts systems engineer and lead engineer Jon Laff as Chief Technology Officer, where he'll lead the company's technical vision and report to the studio's president, Brett Close. At Electronic Arts Montreal, Laff played a key role in growing the new studio and in developing its first AAA IP title, Army of Two. At EA Los Angeles, Laff was the lead engineer on Medal of Honor: European Assault and the Xbox lead engineer on Medal of Honor: Rising Sun. The company, founded in 2006 by Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, is in pre-production on an original fantasy IP driven based on concepts by R. A. Salvatore and Todd McFarlane. Its upcoming products will include an MMORPG, novels, comics, toys, movies, TV, and more. Said Laff, "With the company's visionaries and industry leaders such as Schilling, McFarlane, Salvatore, and Close at the helm, 38 Studios is laying the groundwork to become the industry's next major innovator. I'm looking forward to being an integral part of 38 Studios and to developing the next generation of online entertainment."
