Microsoft’s Playground Games lands top-tier hires from Ready at Dawn and Rockstar North

For many months, rumors have been floating around that Playground Games — the makers of the Forza Horizon series — are working on Fable IV. While we don’t know if that’s actually the case, we do know that the team is working on a role-playing game and it’s hiring a lot of amazing developers to help it create this next-generation experience.

Today, the studio announced that Brian Merrill was now at Playground Games as the Lead VFX Artist. He previously worked at Ready At Dawn that is known for The Order: 1886. Apart from that, Martin Bunker joined the team as Principal Animation Engineer from Rockstar North. Rockstar is of course known for classics like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. You can take a look at the statement below.

It’s great to see the team expanding. Hopefully, the final product will be a polished experience that sets a new standard for Xbox Game Studios titles. However, only time will tell.
