Written Wednesday, December 01, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Having left Codemasters during the development of first-person shooter, Bodycount, Stuart Black - who was also senior designer on Criterion's 2006 OTT shooter, Black - has now joined Sniper: Ghost Warrior developer, City Interactive.
Black will now head up a London-based in-house development studio at City Interactive, where as creative director he'll lead the making of what he's described as ""an exciting new story-driven WWII shooter that will emphasise high adventure in a genre that's become bogged down in reverence and historical accuracy."
City Interactive has two unannounced FPS titles in the pipeline, both of which will be powered by Crytek's proprietary CryEngine 3 set for release over "the next couple of years". This WWII shooter lead by Black is one of them.
Black was creative director on Bodycount before departing Codemasters' Guildford Studio in October. Will he be able to weave his Black magic (snigger) at City Interactive? Watch this space.
