Digital Anvil has announced that Marten Davies, president of the company, will leave the firm on February first. Digital Anvil had originally envisioned itself as an independent publisher, but consolidation in the industry led the company to pursue development and left Davies with a less obvious place in the companies plans. "I have enjoyed the challenge of assisting the company in laying the foundation stones for its current and future success. I have, however, decided that at this time I am unable to bring anymore immediate value to the equation," said Davies of his decision. Digital Anvil's founder and chairman, Chris Roberts, said that the company would not name a successor, rather it will divide Davies' responsibilities amongst others in the firms executive team.
