Two lead Naughty Dog developers jump ship to Infinity Ward


Activision's Call of Duty studio has snatched two lead developers from Naughty Dog. Both design director Jacob Minkoff and narrative director Taylor Kurosaki announced via twitter their news.


"Very psyched to share that I've joined the phenomenal team at @InfinityWard as the studio's narrative director," & "To infinity and beyond!" Kurosaki tweeted.

Minkoff posted "New job! Design Director at Infinity Ward. Love ND; can't wait to play Uncharted 4 as a fan. Excited to work with the talented team at IW!"

For those who don't know, Minkoff was the lead designer on The Last of Us and Uncharted 3, while Kurosaki served as the cinematic production lead for Uncharted 3 and editor on Uncharted 2.

Activision not content gutting their own development teams to add to the COD production line, now they're moving on to other publisher's teams.

Might make the cod games slightly better as you play as Nathan Drake lookalike 2 and duck and cover behind walls and shoot people. It'll be nothing impressive but it'll have the ponies salivating and hailing it as the second coming

The butthurt of Sony fantards everywhere is tangible.

I was also going to say how your post was one of the most pathetically childish things I've read on here Gloria (Seriously, how can you not be embarassed to use a term like "fantards"), but quite frankly I'd sooner just cross my fingers that that banning you've been warned is coming is imminent instead.
