Publisher True Games is continuing to focus more heavily on game development, and has hired chief technology officer and former Electronic Arts exec Mick Giles to lead the charge. At the same time, the company is consolidating its two North American offices, moving its Irvine staff to centralize on its Texas location, which houses its new game development studio. "Over the course of the year our company has changed from a publishing-only focus to one that includes a heavy emphasis on our game development," explains True Games founder and CEO Jeff Lujan. "Bringing our North American staff together under one roof will allow us to grow and nurture our development process, while also providing synergies and complementary support to our development team in Beijing," he adds. New CTO Giles was most recently senior director of online operations for North America and Asia and senior director of technology for Worldwide Studios at EA, and has held roles at Turbine and Sony Online Entertainment, among others. "Mick brings to the team an extensive background in technology, operations, platform management and more, and we look forward to adding his expertise to our management team," says Lujan. "With one live game in Warrior Epic and one game about to go into beta in Mytheon, as well as multiple games in development, his expertise and experience is a welcome addition to the team.”
