    Corrinne Yu leaves Microsoft for Naughty Dog

    Corrinne Yu leaves Microsoft for Naughty Dog

    Some of you might remember her moving over to Microsoft, she was a foundational hire for their Halo team, after having worked at Gearbox and on the NASA Rockwell project.

    After 20 years graphics programming, she's jumping over to PS4 at Naughty Dog it seems. Good hire ND.

    Congrats Corrinne!

    Sony are onto a winner. That's what happens when you ask the industry how they'd like your next gen console to be.

    LOL. I love the fact that her only reference to MS in that tweet, is "No more Windows 8 for me!"

    Windows 8 is horrible.

    Anyway this looks pretty good for ND.

    Windows 8 - a sentiment held even amongst Microsoft professionals.

    Either way glad to have such a prized graphics programmer and award winner aboard, especially at a studio where their graphics are already top standard, now to see how much she'll push them further!

    Wow, this is big news! She was instrumental in getting 343 Studios set up, which was being touted as the resurgence of the "new" Microsoft Game Studios. She is also one of the lead devs for Halo 5. Now, she is jumping ship about a year before that comes out. Either she felt her work was done and she was ready to go, or she said, uh-oh, this is going to be a stinker and it's best to bail before it comes out. Time and again, there is something about MS corporate environment that gives all the talented devs the message it is time to get out of there while the getting is good. Some people go on and on about how much money Microsoft has, but it never seems enough to keep devs from jumping ship.

    Corrinne Yu jumps ship from 343i to NAUGHTY DOG

    One of the most talented people from MSes newly formed 343i studio has this to say on Twitter



    She's one of the reasons Halo 4 looked so good, in case you're still in 'Wat?' mode. She even worked for NASA at one time.

    I really hope she's the one accidentally programmed the one lander in meters instead of feet. I'd really love to see Nathan Drake have the hops in the next Uncharted game before they patch it.

    I noticed she's married to a Kenneth Scott, Senior Art Director at 343 Industries. Maybe she can convince her husband to jump ship too.

    She is a Principal Engine Architect and MS patented the new lighting method she developed. She is a major engine coder plus having exceptional lighting engine expertise. Large projects are always structured as pyramids. There are a few at the top that send directions to the ones below. In games, its the hundreds of texture artists and 3D modelers and animators that are below. The engine designer and creative director are sitting at the top. Remember, this is basically a new section of ND, Cory Barlog coming back as creative director. This new IP will be a PS4 exclusive -- duhhhhhh.
