Sea of Thieves must be doing really well if they were able to bring in two different devs to work and support the game while It already had a big team behind it.

Good to see that even Turn10 is expanding and securing talent they have hired some Rockstar devs that worked in RDR2 https://www.fullthrottlemedia.co.uk/article/forza-concept

Yeah they are officially a AAA sized studio now. Maybe Compulsion will reach that size when they eventually start their new project.

  1. Drew Murray - Sunset Overdrive Director/Lead Designer at Insomniac Games.
  2. Tom Shepherd - Technical Director at Rockstar Games (GTA V)
  3. Brian Westergaard - Lead Producer, Senior Producer on Rise of the Tomb Raider & Lead Producer, Senior Producer on God of War (PS4).
  4. Christian Cantamessa - Lead Writer & Lead Designer on Red Dead Redemption.
  5. Chris O'Neil - Senior Staff Level Designer on God of War (PS4) & Kojima Productions.
  6. Daniel Neuburger - Game Director at Crystal Dynamics for 12 years.
  7. Joe Stinchcomb - Senior Technical Art Director at Rockstar North & Crystal Dynamics.
  8. Andromeda Martinez - Executive Producer at Sledgehammer Games.
  9. Ben Diamand - SpaceX Senior Software Engineer.
  10. Robert Ryan - Designer at Naughty Dog and Motive.

I can't wait to see what these guys do, so much talent in the studio, it'll be a long wait but it should be worth it, if only we could have another studio open and hiring as good as this one, that list is missing a few extras, they should be around 20ish+ staff right now.

An amazing core team that they have right now, no doubt that they will start with mass hires when they actually begin production on their game.

Maybe MS can build another studio like this but they need a core and experienced Industry Veteran to build around.
