Besides Jeff Gerstman and the tragically late Ryan Davis, far and away the most known name from Giant Bomb is Patrick Klepek, who has been around gaming journalism for years writing for such outlets as 1UP, MTV News, G4 and more. Klepek has made Giant Bomb his home for the past few years and has bolstered his fanbase during his tenure. Shockingly, however, it was announced during Giant Bomb’s latest podcast that Klepek had departed the company.
The move is one of many shake-ups for the outlet this year, with Creative Technical Director Alexis Gallisá departing and Dan Ryckert and Jason Oestreicher joining as Senior Editor and Video Producer, respectively.
No word on where Klepek will end up next, but we wish him all the best.
