EverQuest and Pantheon developer Brad McQuaid has died

Quote:
Brad McQuaid, best known as a formative hand in the creation of EverQuest, has died aged 51. McQuaid's death was reported by the official Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Twitter account, which is the MMO he was working on until his death.

It is with deep regret we share that Brad McQuaid passed away last night. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered by gamers worldwide.Thank you for bringing us together through your worlds. Rest in peace @Aradune.VR offers our deepest condolences to Brad’s family.November 20, 2019

A message was also left on the Pantheon MMO forums by user BenD – Visionary Realms' director of comms Benjamin Dean – who writes that McQuaid passed away in his home. "Brad was a visionary, a mentor, an artist, a trailblazer, a friend, a husband, a father," the message reads. "He touched thousands of lives with his dreams and concepts. He changed the landscape of video games forever. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered in life and in Pantheon.

"Thank you, Brad, for bringing us together through your worlds. Rest in peace, Aradune. All of us at Visionary Realms offer our deepest condolences to Brad’s family and during this most difficult time, we kindly ask that you respect the privacy of Brad’s family."


Whoa, thats pretty young to go...

Sad to hear how young he was.

His contribution to EverQuest impacted us all emotionally on this forum. The love of the game, the hate, and the addiction for several years at the turn of the millennium.

Former Vikings kicker Fred Cox, who created the NERF football, dies at age 80

WTF, they're dropping like flies! Didn't realy want to make another death thread but this one stands out for me. Played a ton of nerf football from grades 6-11. If you were male and grew up in the 80's, you probably threw around a nerf football.

Holy shit. Just saw this on reddit of all places and cannot believe it was not something made more of. All I could think of is what his creations meant to an awful lot of people. It is kind of a kick in the gut.
