Crystal Dynamics, the developer behind the upcoming Avengers game, have announced that they have added fifteen new developers to their team.
It first began with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Creative Director and Writer Shaun Escayg leaving Naughty Dog to join Crystal Dynamics and work on the Avengers Project. He announced the first and second part via two different Instagram posts.
“I’m thrilled to join Crystal as Creative Director and be aligned with a team as passionate about telling great character-based stories as I am.” Shaun Escayg wrote after joining the team.
Now, he’s just one of fifteen industry veterans to join ‘The Avengers’ project. Other names include Stephen Barry former Director of Product Development at Visceral Games and worked on the Dead Space franchise. The former developer wrote, “Crystal’s been around almost as long as I’ve been in the business. The immediate chemistry and camaraderie has been exactly what I’d hoped for.”
Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics wrote the following:
“We recently hired fifteen world-renowned industry veterans, spanning production leadership, animation, design, art and engineering, who have previously worked on games such as Batman: Arkham Origins, Dead Space, Star Wars: Battlefront and many more.”
Scod Amos C-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics has said that the large wave of acquisitions of developers is because Crystal Dynamics wanted more AAA experience on the team and it hopes to craft a game Marvel fans will play for years to come.
“We’re committed to delivering an incredible, completely original Avengers experience to our gamers, and that means we are always looking to add amazing developers to our existing best in class studio talent,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “As development progresses, our studio continues to grow. The tremendous progress we’ve made on The Avengers project further drives us toward our goal of crafting something all Marvel fans will be proud of and will play for years to come. We can’t wait to show you what we mean in the future.”
