Crystal Dynamics expands with new staff and studio

Major new talent hired, and Crystal Northwest opens in Washington

Posted on

Crystal Dynamics, the developer of the Tomb Raider franchise, has announced key new hires at its Redwood Shores headquarters and the creation of a new Bellevue, Washington satellite studio: Crystal Northwest.

The new Crystal Northwest studio in the Seattle area is a full-fledged extension of Crystal Dynamics. Dedicated initially to technology development, it will also work on the Avengers Project. It is led by Chad Queen and James Loe.

In addition to the new studio, Crystal Dynamics has added new development talent to its Redwood Shores, California headquarters. These include Vincent Napoli, the new Lead Combat Designer at Crystal Dynamics who was most recently on the latest God of War, and Ben Wanat, original co-founder of the Dead Space franchise, who led the development of Dead Space 3 as Creative Director.

Also joining is David Fifield, with 20 years of experience as Executive Producer and Design Director at 343 Industries on Halo, as well as Game Director at Raven Software on numerous Call of Duty titles.

Crystal Dynamics is part of the Square Enix group of companies.
