I was very surprised to see this. Cam has been the "gaming face" of Margaret Weis Productions, Ltd. for the last 3-4 years.

Here's the press release posted by John Nephew on the Atlas site:

Quote:
It's my pleasure to announce that Cam Banks will join the staff of Atlas Games, starting in February, with the title of Brand Manager.

Atlas Games experienced tremendous growth in 2012, and it looks like things won't slow down this year. It's been a challenge for us to keep up, let alone take advantage of new opportunities that come our way. Cam's diverse talents and experience as a creator and manager will be a tremendous asset.

For the past five years, Cam has worked as Managing Editor, Lead Developer, and Creative Director for Margaret Weis Productions. At MWP, he oversaw the creation and management of roleplaying games based on licensed properties such as the TV shows Leverage and Smallville, and Marvel comics. Cam will continue to work with MWP on select projects (speaking of which, be sure to check out the Cortex Plus Hacker's Guide Kickstarter!). Besides his game credits, Cam has also authored a novel, The Sellsword, which was published by Wizards of the Coast.

We look forward to Cam joining our team!

Wow! Seems a strange move, given that Banks was the guy behind Cortex Plus...

Anybody have a sense for which company is bigger? Is this a move up the business ladder, so to speak, or something driven by creative differences?

Those thoughts ran through my head too.

MWP has the 800-pound gorilla in Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.

Atlas is more diverse with its forays into non-RPGs. Gloom really caught fire when it appeared on Tabletop.

It's hard to say!
