Two former Naughty Dog staff members have revealed via Twitter that they have joined up the Call Of Duty house, Infinity Ward. Jacob Minkoff, who was the lead designer for both The Last Of Us and Uncharted 3, and Taylor Kurosaki, who focused on narrative and edited on the last two PS3 Unchartrd titles, have moved to Infinity Ward to most likely work on the CoD franchise.
Very psyched to share that I've joined the phenomenal team at @InfinityWard as the studio's narrative director. To infinity and beyond!

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!

While Naughty Dog has lost some big names over the last few months there’s no reason to enter panic mode, as movement like this is common in the industry. It may be that both individuals thought it was time to move on to new things, and leave Drake behind.
