Farewell Naughty Dog, Hello BioWare

The name Tal Peleg might be familiar to you for his work on The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as Senior Cinematics Animator, but if it isn’t, you probably know funny and cheeky “Joel Banderas” and “Joel Nicholson” animations.

A big loss for ND but great gain for Bioware.

The animation in ND games is so organic/lifelike that is a big part of the reason why the stories they tell are so compelling.

So I mean are we just assuming a single person did all the animations in the game or? Seriously folks...

Of course not. It's not like ND future games will suddenly not have good animation.

In the end it is still a huge loss of talent for ND however it does not mean he is irreplaceable.

ND have developed a good team... it only stands to reason that they would be in high demand in the industry.

I wonder how much EA paid to pirate him.....

Does that mean the next mass effect and dragon age could have the same good animation of uncharted?

They still use wireframes for everything. Wireframes.
