Naught Dog has seen another set of departures with the latest two former employees jumping ship to join Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward. This brings the total high-level departures to six in the last few months.
This time, Naughty Dog’s narrative design lead Taylor Kurosaki has announced his departure to take up a permanent position with Infinity Ward as the new narrative director. Hopefully this means we’ll be getting some decent Call of Duty plotlines in the future. Joining Kurosaki is Naughty Dog’s lead game designer Jacob Minkoff, who has also picked up a position with Infinity Ward as their new design director.
Both ex-Naughty Dog staffers have extensive history with the Uncharted franchise and the more recent The Last of Us.
