Two Ex-Naughty Dog Developers Start Work On Call Of Duty
If you were a developer at Naughty Dog you might feel like you were at the top of your game – like there weren't many places left for you to go. For two of Naughty Dog's developers, Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward, is the perfect place to go.
The two ex-Naughty Dog developers recently tweeted about their career switch.
New job! Design Director at Infinity Ward. Love ND; can’t wait to play Uncharted 4 as a fan. Excited to work with the talented team at IW!— Jacob Minkoff (@JacobMinkoff) August 1, 2014
Very psyched to share that I've joined the phenomenal team at @InfinityWard as the studio's narrative director. To infinity and beyond!— Taylor Kurosaki (@taylorkurosaki) August 1, 2014
Minkoff was lead designer on The Last of Us and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, and Kurosaki was cinematic production lead for Uncharted 3 and editor on Uncharted 2. Now the two will be bringing their talents to work on the Call of Duty series.

Congrats on the new positions guys. Hopefully this is a big win for Infinity Ward and not a terrible loss for Naughty Dog.
