My math puts him at 44 years old, not 46. Either that or the birth date shown is incorrect.

In any case, that's terrible news.

The birthday is correct. He was 44. I was going to make a thread about this yesterday, but gave up due to technical troubles. I have no idea why it's 46 in the op since it's a copy/paste of the first paragraph in the link, where the correct age is given.

Sad news. I only just began playing Horizon mere days ago, and am absolutely loving it. A kind of haunting piece of music from the game played in my head after I read this news yesterday.

Is it in human of me for my first thought to be, will this effect horizon 2 or future games before I realize a man so young is dead. Seen it on twitter and my mindset only changed until I seen the picture of him here in the OP, thanks for the perspective. This modern world really makes you numb to death if it isn't in your line of sight.

That was one of my first thoughts as well, and I felt guilty. :/

OT:  What a freaking shame. I assumed heart attack, but he appears to be fit in that picture; plus, GG is not an American company, so that much less likely to be heart attack unless he has bad family history. My guess is accident or cancer, but you’d think we would’ve heard about him having cancer previously.

Suicide is a possibility as well, and there are other medical emergencies beyond heart attacks that can cause sudden death.

44 years still seems so young to me even though I have had people close to me dying in their teens and twenties but still, look at some of the things he had involvement in, his works were played by millions of people around the world, he was a part of thousands of hours of enjoyment had globally by gamers. That is a great legacy to have left in my eyes. Rest in Peace lad.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

Terrible news. At least he got to to be there for I what I believe is Guerilla games greatest accomplishment in creating HZD.



Rest in Peace... He was so young...



It's not fair. He wasn't even that old. :(

I’m aware; I’m in medicine. I’m trying to think of the most likely thing to kill someone so young. What else do you have in mind?

Suicide is a possibility. That is typically specified, but they could be trying to keep it private.
