Xbox Studio The Initiative Hires More Top Talent For Its Secret Project

We might not have been treated to any details about what new Xbox studio The Initiative is working on just yet, but it looks like the developer has been considerably busy bringing in some serious talent.

As pointed out by GameSpot, Studio Head Darrell Gallagher took to LinkedIn yesterday to highlight 16 newcomers that have joined the team recently, spanning veterans from the likes of Naughty Dog, Bungie, Crystal Dynamics, Rockstar Games and Respawn Entertainment, just to name a few.

Among these is Remi Lacoste, who previously worked as a Game Director on Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Marvel's Avengers, Jonathan Chavez - Associate Producer on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Destiny 2 Lead Writer Christine Thompson.

It remains to be seen what The Initiative has in store for us and when we'll get to see it, and there's even a suggestion that it might be working on more than one project. One of the big rumours is that it might be developing a Perfect Dark reboot, but ultimately it could be some time before we find out for sure.
