Some of the best and talented developers in the video game industry have joined forces to create a new company, as That’s No Moon studio has been formed by Naughty Dog and Infinity Ward veterans — adding another creative pool to the community!
Securing $100 million from Crossfire studio Smilegate, the newly minted studio is concentrating their efforts on a brand new game — which will be an original action adventure title that’s story driven and yet to be announced.
That’s No Moon will be based on Los Angeles and San Diego, with the figureheads and leaders of the group revealed by gameindustry.biz
Michael Mumbauer (CEO, former head of PlayStation’s Visual Arts Group)
Tina Kowalewski (chief strategy officer, current EVP and board member of Giant Squid and former director of product development at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio)
Nick Kononelos (COO, former senior development director at EA)
Barry Genova (CTO, formerly foundation engineering lead at Bungie)
