The Forge, a podcast focusing on the Genesys RPG, are reporting that Sam Gregor-Stewart, the former RPG manager and game developer for Fantasy Flight Games, will take the lead at the newly formed EDGE Studio from Asmodee.
The creation of EDGE Studio was announced by Asmodee in March at the GAMA Expo. The studio will maintain and develop role-playing games from Star Wars, Legend of the Five Rings, Genesys, Zombicide and more. The studio takes its name from EDGE Entertainment, a board game and RPG publisher based in Europe. The company was purchased by Asmodee in 2017.
Gregor-Stewart joined Fantasy Flight in 2008, but left in January after the RPG department was dismantled and the team was laid off.
