Speaking at Animex Game

Mackey got his first taste of the games industry when he wrote a strategy guide for the PC brawler One Must Fall in 1994. He graduated from mods and maps-for-contract to full time development when he joined 2015 to help finish Medal of Honor: Allied Assault in 2001 for the PC.

In 2002 he and 21 other developers left 2015 in the exodus that became Infinity Ward. Mackey contributed heavily to their four titles: Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Mackey is always looking for ways to push the envelope in FPS games. His proudest accomplishment in gaming to date has been helping to create the "no one fights alone" squad experience of Call of Duty.
