Ubisoft Hires Telltale Veterans Who Worked On Walking Dead, Minecraft, And More

The South Park studio has added four Telltale veterans.


Ubisoft has announced that it's hired a number of Telltale Games veterans who will bring a "wealth of storytelling expertise to Ubisoft San Francisco future projects."

Among the new hires are senior design directors Dennis Lenart (The Walking Dead, Minecraft: Story Mode) and Nick Herman (The Walking Dead), alongside narrative director Pierre Shorette (The Wolf Among Us, Tales From The Borderlands), and creative producer Adam Sarasohn (Tales From The Borderlands).

"We are excited to welcome these strong industry veterans to our skilled team at Ubisoft San Francisco," Ubisoft San Francisco executive producer Francois Pelland said in a statement. "As we continue to expand our portfolio of games, we look to hire the best talent in the industry and infuse team members with a shared passion for development."

Telltale Games is located in San Rafael, California, which is not far from San Francisco.

Ubisoft did not say what the new hires will be working on. One of Ubisoft San Francisco's current projects is South Park: The Fractured But Whole, which was recently delayed again.
