Raphael Colantonio, president at Arkane Studios, has announced he is leaving the company after 18 years. 

Raf has stated he wants to spend more time with his family and ‘reflect on his future’.

During his time at the studio, he was responsible not only for the first game Arx Fatalis, but also the recent Dishonored series and Prey.

“I’ve lived many magical moments. I’ve also been through the hard times. But, I can say that joining ZeniMax took things to the next level and gave Arkane the opportunity to emerge as a world-class studio. ZeniMax enabled us to make the best games that we’ve ever made. And I know there is even more to come.”

Raf’s co-president, Harvey Smith, will take over the reins. We wish Raf all the best for the future.
