Brian Horton, previously a game director at Crystal Dynamics on the Tomb Raider series, has joined Infinity Ward.
Horton was senior art director at Crystal Dynamics for six and a half years, so had a huge influence on the direction the studio took.
“It’s been a huge honour to be a part of the Tomb Raider franchise and the team at Crystal Dynamics,” said Horton to Develop.
“I’ve met fans from all over the world, both in person and online, to share in our love for the franchise and Lara Croft. After working on two amazing games, my family and I have decided to return to Southern California and start a new adventure.
“As sad as I am to leave the team at Crystal, I’m excited to play their future games as a fan. Thanks again for the years of support and feedback and I hope to stay in touch with you all online.”
