Stuart Black on the move again

Written by David Stellmack

Now just an Indie developer

Former Codemasters creative Director of Bodycount as well as the designer of Criterion’s Black has apparently bailed on City Interactive where he had been working on Enemy Front. It seems that this scenario is becoming pretty familiar for Stuart Black these days; he works for a studio and helps them with a new shooter franchise, and before it is finished he leaves to jump to another studio to work on another new shooter franchise.

While we don’t know all of the details, sources suggest that the events are very similar:  Black’s vision of the game and the studio’s vision of the game are different, which results in Black’s departure. This time around, sources say City Interactive wanted to change directions with Enemy front after feedback from recent shows and press showing, and apparently Black wasn’t comfortable with those changes.

Mark Bristol in the U.S. is working with City Interactive now, but it isn’t clear if that is to fill Black’s former role or not. As for Black, his LinkedIn profile indicates that he is now an Indie developer. No word yet on what Black may be working on or for what platform.
