The least we can say is that Microsoft has learned from its mistakes with the Xbox One. In fact, if the marketing campaign for the console was chaotic (all the world remembers Adam Orth and his mythical “Deal with it !”), it is especially the lack of excluded from the top level, which has allowed the PS4 to outperform its rival. Suddenly, the american manufacturer announced at E3 2018 The Initiative, the studio is first-party responsible for developing titles that you can find that on the machines of the house. And if we already knew that the company had in its ranks few great names in the industry such as Brian Westergaard (one of the producers of GOD of WAR), Christian Cantamessa, a former Rockstar Games known for being one of the writers and the lead designer of Red Dead Redemption), or Daniel Neuburger (he has been to the achievement of TOMB RAIDER), a new head just add to the list : Robert Ryan.
Its name tells you maybe nothing, but know that it has worked for almost six years at Naughty Dog. He has worked as a game designer on The Last of Us, The Last of Us Part II, Uncharted 3 : Drake’s Deception and Uncharted 4: A Thief”s End. In short, as much as to say that his expertise will be invaluable to The Initiative that does certainly not make up the numbers. It should be noted that after Naughty Dog, the man has worked on a project not announced at Motive Studio, before arriving at Microsoft. Yes, the next generation may be especially interesting for players.
