Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts' brother, Erin Roberts, was interviewed for the June 11 GameStop circular. The article focuses on Brute Force, Digital Anvil's latest game, but Erin's bio predominantly focuses on his Wing Commander history. Although Chris often gets a lot of the fame, Erin was actually a major force in Wing Commander and Privateer, and he was the executive producer of Privateer 2. On the subject of Brute Force, I've found it to be quite an enjoyable game. It's probably in my XBox top five, and I'm very anxious to system link up several systems for cooperative multiplayer.
Erin Roberts started his career in 1987 working at Origin Systems in Austin, Texas. He worked on titles such as Wing Commander, Strike Commander and Privateer. In 1993 Erin transferred to Electronic Arts UK where he prodiced Privateer 2: The Darkening.
