Ex-Naughty Dog devs join Infinity Ward

4 August 2014

The creator behind Call of Duty has gained two new employees in the shape of former Naughty Dog developers, Jacob Minkoff and Taylor Kurosaki.

Minkoff previously served as Lead Designer on
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and The Last of Us, while Kurosaki was involved with narrative design at the award winning studio.

Following the move to Infinity Ward, Minkoff has assumed the role of Designer Director, while Kurosaki is now Narrative Director. The pair are believed to be working on the follow-up to 2013 military FPS, Call of Duty: Ghosts, which will presumably hit in 2016.

Naughty Dog has suffered a long line of departures this year, among which include
Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond, who quit to join Visceral Games and Riot Games, respectively.

The studio is currently working on
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and also has a major, as-yet unnamed project in development.

Stay tuned to PSU for more details.
