God of War II writer & director Cory Barlog has joined the team at Crystal Dynamics, where he’ll help out on the forthcoming Tomb Raider reboot in addition to a “yet to be announced new title.”
Barlog, who also worked on the PSP title God of War: Chains of Olympus, was most recently attached to a game based on the upcoming film Mad Max 4: Fury Road with Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios.
Speaking on Barlog's move to Crystal Dynamics, studio boss Darrell Gallagher commented:
"Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP.”
"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 be released later this year for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
