Infinity Ward Acquires Former Naughty Dog Pair Jacob Minkoff & Taylor Kurosaki

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.

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.
