Team 17 head quits

Martyn Brown, co-founder of Worms and Alien Breed developer Team 17, has left the company after nearly 20 years of service to become an independent game consultant, announcing the news on his personal Facebook account. “I had an amazing 20-year ride and whilst it’s the end of a truly enjoyable period of my life, it equally signals the start of a really exciting new one.

“My sincere, heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped, in any way, shape or form over those two glorious decades. I leave Team17 in great shape, but now is time for my own adventure.” Team 17’s latest game, Alien Breed 2: Assault was released on the PlayStation Network in December of last year.
