Crystal Dynamics’ development team for its upcoming Marvel The Avengers game got a serious talent boost in January.

Developers from Sledgehammer, Visceral and Monolith have all joined the project, to be revealed in full later this year by publisher Square Enix.

They join ex-Naughty Dog dude Shaun Escayg who joined at the start of the year after working on Uncharted and The Last of Us.

New recruits include Stephen Barry from EA/Visceral who has worked on Dead Space, and a bunch of staff who have collectively worked on Batman: Arkham Origins and Star Wars: Battlefront amongst others

“Their AAA experience adds to an already deep roster, making us well-positioned to deliver on the ambitious goals we’ve set for ourselves with The Avengers project,” said Scot Amos, co-head of studio at Crystal Dynamics. “It’s a stellar addition of many people who fit incredibly well into our wheelhouse of building game experiences we all love.”

The Avengers project was announced this time last year as part of a multi-game deal with Marvel.
