Rise of the Tomb Raider Director Joins Insomniac Games as Marvel's Spider-Man Design Director

Rise of the Tomb Raider Game Director and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Creative Director Brian Horton will work on Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4 next.

December 23, 2017

Rise of the Tomb Raider Game Director Brian Horton just announced on Twitter that he will be joining Insomniac Games as of January 1st.

The veteran developer’s profile mentions that he will take up the role of Design Director on Insomniac’s upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man game for PS4.

Horton is a veteran developer who handled both art and direction jobs since his debut at Disney Interactive in 1994. After that, he worked at Electronic Arts, DreamWorks interactive, The Collective, and Vivendi, before landing at Crystal Dynamics in 2009.

Following his stint on the Tomb Raider franchise, he worked as Creative Director on the campaign of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at Infinity Ward. He left the Activision’s studio this month (which means that he is likely to have already done work on the Call of Duty game that might come out in 2019), and he is now ready for a new adventure on the massively-anticipated Spider-Man title.

Marvel’s Spider-Man will release in 2018 exclusively for PS4.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
