Hell Let Loose Associate Producer Passes Away At 28

"We will miss him immensely."

Hell Let Loose is one of the greatest representations of World War II. It is a hyper-realistic World War II first-person shooter with battles of epic proportions. Building on the basis of previous Battlefield games, the gameplay consists of 100 players with infantry, tanks, artillery, and a dynamically shifting front line.

Recently, the Associate Producer behind this immaculate experience, James Light, passed away. James light passed away due to heart-related issues. Earlier today, the development team, Team 17, uploaded the news on r/HellLetLoose to let the world know, “James passed away on the 18th of June at the age of 28 as a result of complications following cardiac surgery.”

Remembering James Light from HellLetLoose

His passing was sudden and shocking for the team, also leaving them overwhelmed and devastated. The team continues to praise his work on the title immensely. “He is certainly one of the key reasons Hell Let Loose has reached where it is today.”

The team started contemplating at one point if revealing his death to the community would be the right decision. After consulting his family, they decided that he would have wanted this. “As a team, we have thought long and hard as to whether we would share his passing with the community and felt ultimately. With permission of his family, that it is what he would have wanted.”

James Light gave many players hours of enjoyment through his games, and this legacy won’t stop anytime soon. The team states that the same impression he gave to players, was the one the team received themselves. James Light will be remembered for his dedication to the team and his work.

James Light began his career a few years back, in 2018, as the QA Assistant behind Hell Let Loose and was soon promoted to the Production Assistant position as a result of his dedication and effort to the development, after which he was then promoted to the Associate Producer position to oversee the development of the game on PC.
