Perfect Dark developer sees half of its core staff depart in the last 12 months

Perfect Dark developer The Initiative has seen a mass exodus of employees during the past year, VideoGamesChronicle reports. Around 34 employees are no longer working at the company, which makes up about half of the core development team. Just last year, The Initiative announced that it would be working with Crystal Dynamics “to bring this first-person spy thriller to a new generation.”

This seemed weird at the time, but since the development team has been seeing frequent departures, it makes sense why Crystal Dynamics was brought on to help bring the team together. Many of those who left did not occupy small roles, either. Game director Dan Neuburger, design director Drew Murray, principal world builder Jolyon Myers, lead level designer Chris O’Neill, director of narrative Blake Fischer and narrative lead Christine Thompson have all left the company.
