"I'm really happy to be trusted with this incredible responsibility at Splash Damage," said Fascia. "We're working on some great things, and managing such a big and talented programming team, across multiple varied and challenging projects, is a wonderful opportunity. I love multiplayer and Splash Damage suits my passion perfectly."
