Lol why do people keep taking about Sunset Overdrive? Spiderman will be this studios focus for at least two more games.

Wasn't this guy that was harassed by sony fanboys when he celebrated the announcement of perfect dark? I bet they will love him back now and forget all the name callings and insults they said to him.

Wouldn't mind a Resistance reboot since I missed out on that series on PS3.

I was so happy to hear about the perfect dark reboot, but now I’m afraid it’s going to be a flop :(

It's an IP that I think deserves another installment; it's still one of the best consoles exclusives on Xbox One.

Well, I hope this means better games from Insomniac.

And if people are excited about this, then they should be excited for Perfect Dark.

why? He left because the work on his end was probably finished.

This is a common trend in video game development, and a constant source of rumors: that people leave video game companies when their contract is up or their work is finished, and move on to other ones.

He's right, you cows are constantly posting about what occurs all the time in the gaming industry, people leaving 1 company for another, and then you claim it's doom and gloom or company A is failing. Don't pretend like he doesn't have a point

@SolidGame_basic: Bitterness over someone i've never heard of before who's was employed to work on a first person shooter game 🤣🤣🤣

You have to try harder man, this is piss weak at best.

Can another cow take him in and teach him something please, i mean you don't like seeing an animal suffer, its either another cow take him in or take him to the vet to euthanise him 🤣🤣🤣

@kingtito: I've genuinely never heard of the guy until the OP posted it.

Since its SW i bet the guy sucked once he joined MS, but today he's a god tier designer now that he's in Sony's camp 🤣🤣🤣

Me meh didn't know him before today (even though he worked at MS) and i will forget all about him by tomorrow, so a whole lot of nothing going on 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

MS is buying out devs. Sony filters that trash and buys out talent from MS. What happens next? Microsoft with yet another 6/10 game on the horizon 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

Sucks to hear the new Perfect Dark will likely be trash like Zero now that devs are jumping ship early in production. That's never a good sign.

lol.. right? People pick up stories about this guy that guy or the other and worry about what they're doing. Its a business and the big fish will send the smaller fish to swim in whatever pond they see fit even if that fish is the biggest minnow there, well, it means nothing to the sharks.

I only care about the games and not the egos behind them regardless of where it came from.

Never knew about this person's existence and have no love for Insomniac Games. Only clicked this shit to see if there was anything interesting about it. There wasn't.

But now I know there's this guy called Drew Murray who has worked on Spiderman (ew), Sunset Overdrive (don't care) and Resistance (lol). Great.

The Resistance series was a guilty pleasure for me. The story sucked and I also have a bad taste in my mouth from reading the video game novel. However, the gameplay was fun. Especially Resistance 2s multiplayer. As much as I like the series, I don't think it should make a comeback. Unless they just focus on multiplayer. That might work.

@sleepnsurf: You be the judge

Phil's dog is one plain color and just looks like a box. On the other hand Drew's dog has a dynamic black/white color scheme and a more appealing shape.
