Trevor Williams quits Codemasters

As Pivotal co-founder Alex McLean takes over at Codemasters Birmingham

Codemasters has confirmed that Trevor Williams has left the company, almost a year since it acquired his old outfit Swordfish Studios.

Williams was heading up Codemasters Birmingham, which will now go under the leadership of Alex McLean, one of the co-founders of defunct studio Pivotal Games.

"Since joining Codemasters in late 2008 following the acquisition of Swordfish Studios, it’s been a pleasure to have Trevor on the senior studios team and his contribution has been of great benefit to our Southam, Birmingham and Malaysian studios; we wish him the very best in his future projects," offered Gavin Cheshire, VP of Codemasters.

"Moving forward, technical director Alex McLean will take up a new post as studio head, Codemasters Birmingham. Having formed and managed studios in the past, most notably Pivotal Games, he’ll be a great asset as the Birmingham studio ramps up for the delivery of new titles next year."

The departure comes only days after Gavin Raeburn, executive producer on the Dirt and Grid titles, announced he was leaving the UK publisher.
