Watch Dogs creator Jonathan Morin has joined NetEase Games.
NetEase stopped short of revealing what new project Morin will be working on but says he joins other “major talent hires” including some from Quantic Dream, Jackalope, and Nagoshi Studio.
It’s thought NetEase was collaborating with Bungie to bring a completely new instalment in the Destiny series to mobile – a project said to have already been in development for several years.
Morin – who will “help lead NetEase Games Montreal to create a new IP, powering NetEase’s mission to become one of the biggest video game publishers in the world” – brings 24 years of “AAA” experience after having “played a key role in shaping the critically acclaimed Watch Dogs franchise at Ubisoft and vastly contributed to the Far Cry series”.
