After Announcing Perfect Dark Reboot, Senior Dev Drew Murray Leaves Xbox For Sony Studio
Drew Murray has re-joined Insomniac Games to work on something new.
Game developer Drew Murray was one of the first employees of the Xbox studio The Initiative, which recently announced a Perfect Dark reboot, but now he's on the move. After leaving The Initiative some time ago, Murray has now announced he has joined Insomniac Games as a Principal Designer.
This is a homecoming of sorts, as Murray previously worked at Insomniac from 2005-2015. During his time there he contributed to Resistance: Fall of Man, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. His final position at Insomniac during his first run with the company was game director on Sunset Overdrive.
I guess ten years, five games, and six job titles just wasn't enough. I'm excited to be rejoining many friends and former colleagues at @insomniacgames as a Principal Designer. That takes me to my seventh job title; now I just need to work some days and make some games, right? pic.twitter.com/gCK4z4OVUY— Drew Murray (@PlaidKnuckles) February 22, 2021
Murray worked at The Initiative as a lead designer and design director for more than two years. The Initiative announced its first game, a Perfect Dark reboot, in December 2020.
Insomniac Games is on a hot streak. The studio released Marvel's Spider-Man in 2018, which was recently followed up by Spider-Man: Miles Morales, both of which were big hits. The company's next game is Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart for PS5, which launches in June.
