Nice.

Hellblade 2 will be great. The first one was already awesome and was basically made as an indie game,.

I still remember when everyone was crazy about the dudes that developed the last Gears of War because they got a lot of talent from Santa Monica, Insomniac and Naughty Dog, everyone though that it was going to be a 98\100 title.

I wonder if anyone still remember at all Gears 5

It always amaze me when someone make a thread about a dev moving from one studio to another, you people treat devs as if they are are football players or something

Obviously he took a massive raise, and Ninja Theory got a great mind. Thankfully for Sony, their studios are full of them.

He used to work at Ninja Theory, so its more like coming back home. Just post these on the Hellblade II thread instead of making a new one.

Being in a Naughty Dog production technical/ artistic-wise would definitely look good in your portfolio.

Meanwhile, I'm just sitting here, browsing Internet forums.

Naughty Dog is only great when their employess leave ND for an MS studio....Otherwise, they only make cinematic walking simulators....
He just makes the environments. Calm down, they still make walking simulators.

I'll shuttup...gonna go back to playing Death Stranding now....
