Ex-Sony executive Shahid Ahmad has joined British developer Double Eleven in an advisory role.
Ahmad, who served as PlayStation UK’s Strategic Content Boss for close to a decade, will now assist in the studio’s expansion to publishing new content and creating its own IP.
An official statement from Double Eleven CEO Mark South noted that “Shahid’s incredible insight and background in the arena of independent development and publishing is overwhelmingly beneficial to Double Eleven; we’re so pleased to welcome him to our advisory board.”
In light of the news, Ahmad’s own statement revealed that the Sony alum is “honoured to be invited to Double 11’s Advisory Board. Having worked with the Double 11 team on numerous projects while at PlayStation, I was struck by their technical excellence, their commitment to quality and their devotion to delivering great experiences to video games players.”
Having worked on ports of Goat Simulator and Limbo, Double Eleven is currently bringing Prison Architect to current-gen systems in time for a spring release.
