Derek Paxton Overseeing All Stardock Development

Stardock announces a changing of the guard, as Derek Paxton has been promoted to vice president and will be overseeing all future games development and production at the studio. This is a role previously held by Stardock founder Brad Wardell, who clarifies for us: "I'm not retiring or anything. We're just in the process of expanding in a big way." Here's part of the announcement, which says we should expect new game revelations next month:

A modder-turned-studio-leader, Paxton was most recognized for his work on the Fall from Heaven mod for the popular Civilizations IV strategy game prior to joining Stardock as lead designer in 2010. Derek joined Stardock after a decade-long career working with Fortune 500 company Novell in the technology sector. Since joining Stardock in 2010, Paxton successfully brought to market the last two titles in the Elemental franchise – both of which earned positive critical receptions from top international games media and fans.

"Derek has really transformed the game studio," said Brad Wardell, President & CEO of Stardock. "His experience at managing multiple projects combined with his amazing design skills has resulted in not just better games but a better working environment for our teams."

As part of the company’s 20th anniversary this October, Paxton and Stardock Entertainment will announce a series of new projects from the studio which will include new titles and more.

"I'm looking forward to the incredible opportunity to lead a studio with a legacy of creating award-winning strategy games," said Paxton. "Games are a passion for everyone who works at Stardock Entertainment and it's an honor to be able to work with such talented developers, artists and designers. I look forward to continuing the tradition of creating incredible games with the amazing team at Stardock."

And it happened only two weeks before Brad's sexual harassment case goes to trial. What a coincidence.
