Jonathan Fargher Death – Jonathan Fargher had spent over 25 years working in video games, and on some of the biggest brands in the industry, has passed away at the age of 46. Jonathan died leaving behind his wife Jo Bartlett and dog Baxter.
A report said that Jonathan handled UK PR for Psygnosis during the launch of the first PlayStation, which led to a 14-year stint at Sony. It’s here where he made his name in the business, working across PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4, alongside the portable consoles. Fargher joined Ubisoft earlier this year as director of UK corporate communications.
Also, he then joined Activision as head of UK communications for nearly eight years, working across Skylanders, Call of Duty, and Destiny. UKIE, the trade body for the UK games industry, tweeted saying, “We’re deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jonathan Fargher, who was a valued part of Ukie’s communications group. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and co-workers across the UK games industry.” The cause of his death has not been made known.
