We don’t typically post about job moves within the industry. However, given the interest in new studio The Initiative and the sheer amount of talent they’ve acquired over the past 12+ months, we felt this was worth commenting on.
According to LinkedIn, which we verified directly, a former, senior Naughty Dog developer who worked on The Last of Us 2 and was responsible for Shader Technologies, is the latest acquisition by The Initiative.
As we’ve discussed extensively, all signs point to The Initiative creating a brand-new title in the Perfect Dark universe. Given the talent they’ve acquired in growing the studio, we are incredibly excited to see the first glimpse of the game. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer.
