Before joining Naughty Dog in 2012, Wells spent 13 years at Irrational Games. He left Naughty Dog in April this year and join The Unfinished Swan developers, Giant Sparrow.
Wells will now serve as art director for Crystal Dynamics, though it hasn’t been announced whether he’ll be working on the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider or a new IP (or the Soul Reaver sequel we all still hope for – and keep asking Square Enix about, much to their annoyance).
We’ll update you when we hear more.
