Sniper: Ghost Warrior developer City Interactive Games has hired industry veterans Steve Hart and Paul Robinson. Hart joins as an executive producer and Robinson will be a member of the company’s senior creative and design team.
“This is a great opportunity to join an established company looking to cement its position as a serious player within the global games industry,” said Hart. “CI Games vision, drive and determination to become a bona fide triple-A developer should be applauded and having seen the likes of Enemy Front & Lords of the Fallen in production, these are exciting times for the company and I’m honoured to be involved.”
During his five years at Rebellion, Hart worked on several titles including Sniper Elite V2.
“After more than two decades in game development in roles from AI programming, lead design, to game direction across a broad spectrum of genres, I am returning to my roots working on first person shooters with CI Games,” Robinson added. “Enemy Front is an interesting and fresh take on World War 2 shooters and a perfect opportunity for me to use my experience in storytelling and game direction to ensure that the project realises its full potential in those areas.”
Robinson has previously worked for firms including NovaLogic, Pandemic and Guerrilla Games.
