None of you know me - but let's change that! My name is Kolbe Launchbaugh - I’m the creative leader and co-founder of Carbonated. I’ve been in the games industry for a long time with my first titles way back on the original PlayStation.
We know you may be angry at Glu. You may be excited for change. You may be sad for the loss of your friends at the studio. You have questions. You have concerns. These are all completely fair, and we understand.
In the coming weeks, we're going to be tackling a lot of stuff:
-- Continue to run and support the live game
-- Dig deep into the game, team, process, and community
-- Grow our staff with experienced members of the current RR team and/or new personnel
-- Develop fixes and updates for the “near” future
-- Plan longer term and larger scale fixes and updates for the long haul
-- Bring some of you in for the first RR summit with Carbonated
As much as I would love to give you all of the answers and quell all of your concerns, we’re not in a position to do that just yet. I hope you can understand that we’re going as fast as possible, we will be as open and honest as we can, and above all else, we care a great deal for both you and the product.
This is a fresh start for Racing Rivals, for us, and for you. Lets make the most of it together!
