Newsbrief: Major League Gaming representatives announced today that the organization has hired Zombie Studios creative head Jared Garritzen to serve as the company's vice president of publishing and developer relations.
Gerritzen has spent eight years working at Zombie in Seattle on the Blacklight series of multiplayer games, most recently the free-to-play Blacklight: Retribution. Prior to joining Zombie, he spent time working at both Monolith and Surreal Software.
