Director, Producer and Writer

Chris Roberts (born May 27, 1968) is a computer game designer, programmer, film producer, and director. He is best known for creating the popular Wing Commander series while employed at Origin Systems. Born in Redwood City, California, Roberts grew up in Manchester, England. He attended the same school with the computer music composer Martin Galway. As a teenager, he created several hit games for the BBC Micro, including Stryker's Run and Wizadore. Roberts returned to the United States in 1986. He soon found a job at Origin Systems, where he created Times of Lore, published in 1988. The game's interface had a strong influence on other Origin products such as the popular Ultima series. A similar game system was used in Roberts' next release for Origin, Bad Blood (1990). Wing Commander was published later in 1990 and was highly acclaimed. Wing Commander (and the franchise it spawned) soon became Origin's most successful product, eclipsing even the Ultima series. Roberts wasn't as heavily involved in the sequel Wing Commander II, which he only produced. He instead concentrated on Strike Commander. First shown to the public at Summer CES 1991, the project suffered from numerous delays
