David Votypka, the General Manager of the recently closed Kaos Studios, has joined Ubisoft to become Senior Creative Director at Ubisoft Red Storm, his LinkedIn profile has revealed.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Votypka, who worked as the Creative Director on THQ’s hit FPS Homefront, moved to Red Storm earlier this month, having worked at Kaos Studios since 2005. He had worked as General Manager and Creative Director at the studio since May 2009.
Ubisoft Red Storm, meanwhile, is currently working on Ghost Recon: Future Soldier alongside Ubisoft Paris. The studio is also rumoured to be working on a new instalment in the Rainbow Six series.
Votypka’s move to Ubisoft is almost the direct opposite to that of ex-Ubisoft Creative Director Patrice Desilets, who left the Assassin’s Creed team at Ubisoft Montreal last year to join THQ.
He officially started work as a Creative Director at THQ Montreal earlier this month.
Kaos Studios was closed by THQ on June 13th. Rumours of the studio’s closure first emerged back in January.
The developer’s final game, Homefront, launched in March. The shooter has since shipped in excess of 2.6 million units.
We spoke to Votypka about Homefront prior to the game’s release earlier this year. You can see what he had to say about Kaos through here.
