SWG Lead Gameplay Designer Dies

Share |

The Escapist has reported that Jeff Freeman, the lead gameplay designer of Star Wars Galaxies, has committed suicide. Freeman was the main target of angered fans when the extremely unpopular gameplay overhauls SWG rolled in. The insults and hatred towards him weren’t the catalysts to his suicide, says his brother:

"Freeman’s brother clarified that his suicide had nothing to do with the game. "I want everyone to know that it was not SWG that led him to take his life," he said. "He has been troubled for some time. There were a lot of personal issues that tore at him."

There’s not much to say, really.
