The news came via Wells’ Twitter account.
This is the third studio Wells has been involved with in the last year. After leaving Naughty Dog, he worked with indie developer Giant Sparrow (known for The Unfinished Swan) and then shortly with the San Francisco-based startup Missing Presumed Drowned.
It’s unclear what Wells will be working on at Crystal Dynamics, but it will be interesting to see if his past experience working on Naughty Dog’s dark adventure title will affect the development of the sequel to 2013’s hit game, Tomb Raider. Then again, he could be working on a completely different title.
