Zipper lead designer leaves dev to tackle startup company

Just days after the release of Zipper Interactive’s SOCOM 4, the project’s lead designer has left the developer. Travis Steiner is now set to tackle his own startup opportunity, something he’s been looking to do for a while but wanted to see the tactical action game through to completion first. Zipper’s Jeremy Dunham broke the news via Twitter.

It will be interesting to see both Steiner’s new projects and where the SOCOM franchise goes without him. Let’s give the fourth entry a little time to settle in before we start ramping up sequel talk, though.
