Infinity Ward adopts two Naughty Dog employees

S. Prell, @SamPrell

Taylor Kurosaki and Jacob Minkoff have joined the list of developers who have left The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog to pursue other interests. The pair will both join Call of Duty series developer Infinity Ward, with Kurosaki taking on the responsibilities of Narrative Director, and Minkoff assuming the role of Design Director. The men each tweeted their respective news earlier today.

Kurosaki and Minkoff's departures are the latest chapters in a tale that is starting to feel pretty familiar; former Naughty Dog art director Nate Wells is now with Giant Sparrow, game director Justin Richmond has been summoned to Riot Games, and Amy Hennig, writer of the Uncharted series, is currently working with EA and Visceral Games on an as-of-yet unseen Star Wars game.

Last of Us directors Bruce Stanley and Neil Druckmann don't seem to be going anywhere, which is good news for anyone looking forward to the upcoming movie adaptation.
