Deadliest Warrior studio head steps down

Deadliest Warrior

Last week reports surfaced that Robert Daly, studio head of Deadliest Warrior developer Pipeworks Software, had lied about his experience as a Special Forces member. Now it turns out that the reports were indeed true.

Daly took to a Special Forces community site to express his apologies over the recent controversy.

“I am honored to have served with the 12th Special Forces Group as an Intelligence Analyst (96B) from 1991 until 1994,” he said. “While I wore the green beret as part of my uniform, I utterly regret that I have misrepresented my role by creating the impression that I was a ‘Green Beret.’ I have nothing but the utmost respect for the Green Berets and my fellow servicemen, and I respectfully apologize to the Special Forces community.”

Daly then announced that he will be stepping down from his role at Pipeworks Software and will no longer be appearing on the Spike television show Deadliest Warrior.

“At this point in time for the best interests of Pipeworks Software and F9E [Foundation 9 Entertainment] I am voluntarily resigning my position of Studio Head of Pipeworks effective immediately,” he said. “Furthermore I have no plans on appearing in any more episodes of Deadliest Warrior.”

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
