Insomniac Programmer Michael Kuehl Passes Away

Michael Kuehl, a programmer with Resistance developers Insomniac - and who had also worked at Infinity Ward and Electronic Arts - has tragically passed away at the age of 32.

Kuehl was struck by a car while riding his motorcycle, and died from his injuries.

Our thoughts go out to his family and colleagues.


    That's really sad:(
    I just picked up a new copy of Resistance 3 yesterday so i dedicate my playthrough in his honour.

    Not a good time to be involved in games development...

      Completely insensitive and jerkish.

        No it was actually very factual.

    He helped make one of my fav games of all time. Ratchet and Clank.

    May he go to game dev heaven.

    Rest well, Mike. It's a tragedy that you should die so young.

    f4ction, while I agree that these comments are unnecessary and diminish isolated, terrible instances into a sort of meme, I think they were intended in a good way.

    Terrible news, but I'm glad you guys mention these people so they are remembered for who they were not what happened to them, rest in peace mate.

    Woah, that is awful.

    I am curious though, what did he actually do and on which games?
    I want to know if he had a big part in them, and if I should expect any future Ratchet & Clank's to be different from this, for example.
    I tried researching for this information but didn't find anything.

    Also, I know it's not really the time for correcting grammar and that, but " Resistance developers Insomniac" you mean former developers of the Resistance series. They gave the series rights to another company and won't be making any more Resistance games.
