According to Gamesindustry.biz, Jason VanderBerghe, former Ubisoft Montreal creative director, has joined ArenaNet as its new director of design.

In a public post on Facebook, VandenBerghe confirmed he was leaving Ubisoft and said “I won’t be making games directly any more – I’ll be studio level, shepherding teams and growing people. I’m… sort of thrilled about how difficult that sounds. It’s exactly what I want to be doing right now.”

ArenaNet is a subsidiary of NCSoft and the creator of the Guild Wars franchise.
