It was revealed today on Giant Bomb that co-founder Ryan Davis had passed away last week. The man was 34 years old and had been recently married. No cause of death is known, at present.
“The consolation we can feel from that is miniscule compared to the hole that Ryan’s absence will leave in our lives,” reads the message posted on Giant Bomb.
Davis had left GameSpot with co-founder Jeff Gerstmann after Gerstmann was fired from GameSpot. The two managed to build their own community following and become underground sensations over night. His presence in the games industry will be missed dearly.
