Ex-God of War boss Cory Barlog has joined Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics after leaving Just Cause developer Avalanche Games.
The creative director of God of War 2 left Sony Santa Monica a few years back to head to Avalanche to apparently work on a Mad Max game at the studio.
Barlog’s arrival at CD comes as the studio celebrates its 15th anniversary and prepares to release a Tomb Raider reboot this coming autumn and announce a new IP sometime this year.
“Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP,” said studio boss Darrell Gallagher.
“Cory’s heritage in building industry defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character driven blockbuster entertainment makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team.”
