Visceral Studios execs defect to new Activision studio

Activision is opening up a new games studio and, as one might expect, they desire top quality talent to work there. So, they strolled on over to Visceral Games, the EA-owned studio responsible for Dead Space and the upcoming Dante's Inferno, and picked some up.

Yesterday, Visceral's General Manager, Glen Schofield, and COO, Michael Condrey, announced to their fellow employees that they would be joining Activision's currently unnamed studio. Schofield, in particular, has got to feel like a nasty blow, as he was the man chiefly responsible for pushing Dead Space through development.

So, what will the new, San Francisco-based studio be doing? Your guess is as good as mine. Considering the talent at work, it's probably not going to be responsible for the Shrek franchise.
