God of War director goes from Kratos to Lara

Cory Barlog, best known for directing PS2 swansong God of War II, has found a new home at the Croft Mansion.

Barlog left Santa Monica Studio all the way back in 2007 but has recently moved on to Crystal Dynamics, which is currently hard at work on Tomb Raider and an unannounced project. He’s played some part in every God of War release bar God of War III.

Studio Darryl Gallagher said of his recruitment: “Crystal has pulled together some of the best teams in the industry to deliver against upcoming projects and future IP.

“Cory’s heritage in building industry defining action adventure titles, together with our focus on delivering quality character driven blockbuster entertainment makes Cory a tremendously exciting addition to the team.”

Hopefully, then, we’ll be seeing more of Tomb Raider soon.
