Called to duty: Two Naughty Dog designers join Infinity Ward

Welp

A couple of Naughty Dogs have gone to join Riley the Call of Duty dog at Infinity Ward. Twelve year Naughty Dog veteran and narrative design lead Taylor Kurosaki split to the nationalistic shooter factory, he announced on Twitter. He’s now a Narrative Director at Infinity Ward.

And apparently he’ll be joining former lead game designed at Naughty Dog Jacob Minkoff, who also jumped to Infinity Ward as a Design Director

Uncharted writer/director Amy Hennig notably left Naughty Dog early this year to go make a Star Wars game at Dead Space‘s Visceral. Soon after Uncharted 4‘s then-director, Justin Richmond, left to go to Riot. The Last of Us creative director Bruce Straley and game director Neil Druckmann were called upon to lead the project.
