Developer Certain Affinity has announced that they have acquired a new Narrative Director by the name of Corey May. Corey was one of the scriptwriters for the Assassin’s Creed series, but has left his position at Ubisoft to join the team at Certain Affinity.
Certain Affinity President Max Hoberman had this to say on the acquisition:
“I’m thrilled to welcome Corey to Austin and Certain Affinity. This is the first of several new key leadership positions aimed at helping us evolve from a co-developer into a full-blown developer of AAA console and PC games. While multiplayer will continue to be an important part of our DNA and our project portfolio, we’re also intent on becoming experts at single player and cooperative experiences. Best-in-class talent like Corey building and leading our Narrative Department is a huge leap in this direction, and his experience and perspective will be tremendous assets to us.”
May has worked on games such as Assassin’s Creed, Army of Two, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed; Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed III and Batman: Arkham Origins. He has also worked in the film industry and his credits include The Plague, Sleeping Beauty, The Hunt and Dogs of Babel. May holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Harvard University and a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Southern California.
