Former director of Driveclub Col Rodgers has explained why he left Evolution Studios after NeoGAF user Pete Dodd suggested it was because he “failed to deliver” the PlayStation 4 exclusive racing game.
“Everything he has said with regard to myself and Driveclub is incorrect,” Rodgers said in his first post to NeoGAF. “It's also libellous.”
Rodgers explained that he left Evolution Studios in February to be with his son, who’s been diagnosed with a potentially life threatening condition. “I live 220 miles (4 hours drive) away from Evolution Studios, and was away from home 5.5 days a week,” he said. “Given the circumstances, I could not continue to work there.”
Rodgers said he informed Dodd that he needs to remove the statements and apologize for the damage they caused. He did.
As we reported when we first heard the news, Rodgers is now heading an indie startup called Big Red Switch Games.
