Former UK editor for gaming website GameSpot Rob Crossley has joined Creative England as its new Head of Games.
He will bring his experience as a games journalist to the not-for-profit organisation in order to inform its strategies and decisions.
Crossley's first event with the organisation will be EGX from September 22nd to 24th, where Creative England will have a "strong presence". It will be in attendance to show off three of the games it has recently supported.
A proud history
"England carries a proud history of producing innovative, inspiring, and influential video games for more than thirty years," said Crossley.
"I could not be more delighted to join Creative England as it looks to support and collaborate with the country’s next generation of bold and brilliant games creators."
"With my experience I want to further unify Creative England with the industry it serves, find the best undiscovered talent, as well as use my knowledge in publishing to help our partners break through the noise and turn heads."
