Frogster CEO and managing director, Andreas Weidenhaupt, has become the latest to quit the company following a turbulent year.

Weidenhaupt, who leaves in April, follows Rolf Kloppel and Benjamin Kaiser who left to form rival firm Neonga last year, and most recently Ralf Kloppel, who also joined his brother at the new business.

Weidenhaupt's other duties included managing director and founder of the portal, and he was responsible for licensing some of its biggest hits including Runes of Magic, TERA, Mythos and an as-yet unannounced title from Shanda Games.

All the high-profile executives have left Frogster since the announcement of a friendly takeover by Gameforge.
