Activision are building a new studio in San Francisco. But need people to work there. So to get the ball rolling, they've nicked two of the senior staff at EA's Visceral Games, the team behind Dead Space and Dante's Inferno.
Glen Schofield, who was general manager at Visceral, and Michael Condrey, who was chief operating officer, both let their colleagues at EA know today that they were off to work at the new studio, whose name and purpose is at the moment a mystery. Though we'd think hiring those guys rules out "family Wii party games" from the studio's mission statement.
