Ever since the launch of its Otherside metaverse, Yuga Labs has seemed intent to expand beyond non-fungible token collections. Now, it has found its man. The top NFT company has hired Spencer Tucker as its first Chief Gaming Officer to head the development of its Otherside metaverse and other gaming ventures.
Tucker is well-heeled in the gaming industry. He served as the President of Gaming at Scopely and the Senior Vice President of Product at Gree International Entertainment. He announced the signing with a Tweet, saying, “Thrilled to announce that I am joining @YugaLabs as their first Chief Gaming Officer. Let’s get to building. LFG.”
He added in a statement that Web3 is “revolutionizing” community, gaming, and entertainment in the same way mobile phones did for communication. He is excited to join the Yuga Labs team and continue building in this “era of interoperability” and community growth in the Otherside metaverse.
Tucker has around two decades of experience in the gaming industry. He specializes in game development, design, UGC, web3, and creative community involvement.
Nicole Muniz, the CEO of Yuga Labs said, “Spencer brings a passion for and deep knowledge of gaming and shares our vision for the Otherside metaverse.”
