Crystal Dynamics has revealed today that God of War director Cory Barlog has joined as part of the team.
Barlog will be working along with the rest of the studio on a new Tomb Raider in addition to a “yet to be announced new title.”
He’s certainly had a colourful past, having worked as writer/director for God of War 2, was creative director for Chains of Olympus and also led story creation for Ghost of Sparta.
“Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP,” said Darrell Gallagher, head of studio.
“Cory’s heritage in building industry defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character driven blockbuster entertainment makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team.”
Tomb Raider is expected to release this autumn. It looks fantastic and we can’t wait to get hold of it.
