Corey May, a veteran video game director and scriptwriter, has a new gig. According to a Facebook post (via Game Informer), he started at 2K Games in Novato, California this month. He is working at the company a senior narrative director for an unspecified project.

May spent close to a decade at Ubisoft Montreal, where he oversaw the narrative direction for the developer's projects. This includes the original Assassin's Creed and its sequels, as well as Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. He has also worked in the film business with through Sekretagent Productions. His film credits include The Plague, Sleeping Beauty, The Hunt, and Dogs of Babel.

He joined independent developer Certain Affinity, which has worked on behemoth franchises like Halo and Call of Duty, in the summer of 2015. At the time, Certain Affinity said it was entering an "ambitious new phase," and bringing on May was just one part of the developer's effort in its evolution "from helping others with AAA development to developing entire games on our own."

Certain Affinity previously worked on maps for Halo 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Left 4 Dead. The studio's own games include Crimson Alliance and Age of Booty.

May said joining Certain Affinity as its new narrative director was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."

We'll report back if and when details are made available regarding what May is working on at 2K.
