Monolith Productions’ Michael Forgey, who worked on games like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Gears of War, has passed away after a year long battle with cancer. Forgey’s family announced the news of his death yesterday, stating that he passed away on March 3 at 3:15 am after initially being diagnosed in May 2015.
In December, Monolith appealed for help and donations to help Forgey cover his medical expenses as well as support his three children. A note on the campaign’s page by his family thanked everyone for their support.
Mike passed away yesterday, March 3 at 3:15 am. His last few days were peaceful with his family by his side. Mike was so touched by everyone’s support during his fight. His family wants to thank everyone for their kind words and support during this difficult time.
This is incredibly sad news, and our thoughts are with Forgey’s family and loved ones.
