Why did Jeff Gerstmann leave Giant Bomb?
According to Giant news published on June 6th, 2022 Jeff Gerstmann and Giant Bomb separated their own ways.
They just mentioned this news along with jeff’s contribution but did not mention any clarification on the reason why Giant bomb and Jeff Gerstmann have their own ways.
But they have revealed that former Giant Bomb member Dan Ryckert will be returning to the site as a creative director. Dan also tweeted on June 7th about his joining.
Now as there are no exact reasons both from Giant Bomb and Jeff Gerstmann why they separated, we guess it could be because of.
- Not feeling comfortable anymore and missing his old Giant bomb colleague Ryan Davies who passed away.
- Jeff is now a family man and he may have more responsibilities.
- Some internal disputes
- Time for a Change
These are just my personal guess as I have been watching this podcast for a long time and he is like my hero.
