This session presents a perfect storm of postmortems. Richard Vogel, VP of Technology and Online Services at Certain Affinity, discusses his journey as an Executive Producer running the live-service games Star Wars: The Old Republic, Star Wars Galaxies, and Ultima Online—weaving a narrative about how each of these titles changed how he approaches running a game-as-a-service.
He shares the lessons learned working on each title and will provide excellent examples from the trenches that helped shape what he did on his next game regarding project management, leadership, community management, outsourcing, analytics/KPIs, and running a live service.
Attendees will walk away with strong insight into what it takes to run a successful game-as-a-service, helping turn around their live game or makes their launch a better player experience.
This is for anyone who has a senior leadership role in a game development studio.
