Aroged (via GamesIndustry.biz) reported that Quinn Duffy, design director at Age of Empires 4 developer Relic Entertainment, announced his departure from the studio via a post on LinkedIn. He was at the company for almost 24 years.

"At Relic, I had a passion for both history and the real-time strategy genre. That's why I could not have been more excited to have helped build a new part of this beloved and iconic franchise," said Duffy in his post. After a long tenure at Relic, he finally became design director of RTS games in 2010, capped off by the release of the well-received Age of Empires 4.

Known for franchises like Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, Relic Entertainment has been one of the few torchbearers for the flagging RTS genre in recent years, only now getting a renewed push thanks in large part to how popular Age of Empires 4 was at its release. It’s great to see a developer that sticks to its vision pushing trends forward and ushering in the kind of games industry it wants to see and be a part of.
