Naughty Dog acquires former Assassin’s Creed 3 & Mass Effect 2 animator

The developer behind the Uncharted franchise has snapped up a former Assassin’s Creed III and Mass Effect 2 animation director, Jonathan Cooper.

According to Cooper’s LinkedIn profile, he has been working with Naughty Dog for the past three months as an animator.

Cooper was previously working at Ubisoft Montreal on an unannounced project, where he was “prototyping a revolutionary new kind of navigation system for next-gen systems.”

Naughty Dog has been in the headlines quite frequently as of late, having suffered a number of high-profile departures including Amy Hennig, Justin Richmond and Nate Wells.

The company is working on the next chapter in the celebrated Uncharted series, which will be released exclusively for PlayStation 4.
