Van Caneghem Departs Trion

Joystiq follows up on an anonymous tip they received, saying they have confirmed with Trion World Networks that Jon Van "Canegham" Caneghem "has transitioned out of his role as president and no longer holds any operational responsibilities at Trion. His creative and operational roles have been distributed among the talented senior team." The "inflammatory" tip they received said the Might and Magic and Heroes of Might and Magic designer was let go, but the Trion statement is unclear, saying, "JVC's departure is a part of the natural evolution of the growing company. To manage an ambitious and successful operation, the Company will always rely on its core belief that great teams plus great processes make great games." Last June Trion announced Van Caneghem was designing a fantasy-themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and while that project is not referenced, word is: "Trion is well funded, has strong teams with ambitious games in production and its partners are the leading players in the media, technology and finance worlds."
