It appears that Perfect Dark developer The Initiative may have lost another key member of its team following the departure of the studio's co-founder and lead designer, Drew Murray, who returned to Insomniac Games last year.
According to the LinkedIn profile of Dan Neuburger, as spotted by Resetera member Klobrille (and on VGC via VideoGamer), the Game Director departed the Perfect Dark reboot developer last month, seeking a new role as Creative, Design, or Game Director on another project.
Neuburger had been part of developer The Initiative since 2018, joining the team from Crystal Dynamics, the studio who is also currently aiding in development on Perfect Dark. Hopefully, Neuburger's possible departure isn't a sign of development issues at The Initiative, as it's been some time since we've had any meaningful updates on Perfect Dark. Here's hoping we hear something soon.
