Jhony Ljungstedt also led art direction for many Battlefield titles…
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst and Battlefield V art director Jhony Ljungstedt is the latest senior recruit at Retro Studios.
At EA’s Dice studio Ljungstedt has led art direction for several titles, including Battlefield 3: Close Quarters and Back to Karland, and Medal of Honor (2010).
Retro had been advertising for an art director role for more than a year, possibly for the upcoming Metroid Prime 4.
Jhony's most recent post on Linkedin says
"Today was my last day at DICE and it’s with mixed feelings I’m leaving something that’s been part of my life for such a long time. It’s been great journey and I feel privileged to have got the chance to work with all the talented people at DICE, you will all be missed... Now I’m ready for a new chapter in my life, and looking forward to my new journey at Retro Studios. "
This follows other recent notable hirings from Retro Studios including:
- Halo creative Kyle Hefley (who worked on more than 20 titles including Call of Duty Black Ops and Sleeping Dogs), joined as character artist last August
- Stephen Dupree from Playful Corp, lead designer of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze: he returned to Retro after a two-year absence
Retro is building quite the team for the big return of Metroid Prime.
