Former 2K Games Community and Social Media Manager David Hinkle has joined computer hardware and peripherals company Corsair Gaming (NasdaqGS: CRSR) in a similar role. Hinkle said on social media that he will be “part of the gaming team doing rad stuff on social.” 

Hinkle joined 2K Games in 2014 as its community and social media manager, spearheading activities for such games as WWE 2K Battlegrounds, PGA TOUR 2K21, XCOM: Chimera Squad, Civilization VI  and associated expansions, XCOM 2 and its expansion, Sid Meier’s Starships, Civilization: Beyond Earth, and many other games over nearly six and a half years.
