Over on Twitter, Spec Ops: The Line Lead Writer Walt Williams has announced that after nine years, not only is he leaving 2K Games, but AAA game development entirely to “try something new.”

Williams’ most recent work is the Turtle Rock multiplayer shooter, Evolve, and Firaxis Games’ turn-based strategy game, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth.

This isn’t the first time this year that a video game developer has left AAA game development. Just this July, PayDay 2 Director and Battlefield: Bad Company, BF3 developer, David Goldfarb also announced that he’s abandoning AAA projects to form his own studio.
