Corrinne Yu's LinkedIn profile indicates that she has moved from her position as Principal Engine Architect at Microsoft's Halo 4 developer, 343 Industries, to Uncharted developer Naughty Dog.

At this time we don't know what project she is working, but her position is listed as "Graphics Coding on PS4." However, during the launch event for Sony's new console Naughty Dog announced that it's currently developing Uncharted 4, a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Yu has an extremely impressive résumé with a number of awards and notable credits to her name. Prior to her role at Microsoft she was the director of Technology at Gearbox where she worked on Borderlands. She is also a founding member of Microsoft's Direct 3D Advisory Board.

I watched the video interview linked to by Mausingen (thanks for that). Seemed to me she said all the right things. The move will hopefully work out well for Yu, them, and most importantly us.

Who cares if she's attractive or not, her job is programming, not modeling. I hope this goes well for Naughty Dog, I wasn't the biggest fan of uncharted, but I loved The Last of Us.

Everyone else has talked about the things I want to talk about in the comments actually related to her job, so I'm just going to point out that she's cute as balls.

<< LINK REMOVED >> "Balls" typically are not what I'd describe as "cute," though maybe I've lived a sheltered life.

She's not just a programmer. She was "principal engine architect" at 343 Industries. I would say this is a good acquisition for Naughty Dog.The future is looking good for all of us who love Uncharted.
