From World of Risen comes this sad news: Alex Brüggemann, one of the co-founders of Piranha Bytes passed away last week:

In the night from Saturday to Sunday, [last week]  Piranha Bytes co-founder Alex Brüggemann died in presence of his wife and mother. Alex Brüggemann was one of four founders of Piranha Bytes and thus, one of the spiritual fathers of the Gothic series. As Ralf Marczinczik wrote in his blog, Alex was diagnosed with cancer about three years ago. It appears he now succumbed to this dreadful disease.The World of Risen mourns with the family and friends of Alex and wishes them all the best and the strength to see through these difficult times.

For sone reason, I can't use the ü-letter in the newsbit title - sorry for the inconvenience.
