I finally got round to writing and handing in my letter of resignation to Codemasters. I had spoken to HR before leaving to see if there was any possibility of me staying in their books, or taking extended unpaid leave. The short answer was no. It’s not a problem for me, and I expected it, 6-8 months is a long time.
It’s been awesome working in the games industry and I’m obviously leaving with regrets, but it’s time to see the rest of the world!
Having spoken to the bosses I don’t think it’s completely unrealistic to be working there again at the end of 2013, but we’ll see. I start my notice on Christmas day, and leave on the 25th of January 2013.
