Gears of War cinematics director leaves Epic for Black Tusk

Greg M. Mitchell joins Microsoft to continue working on the Xbox exclusive franchise

Microsoft has made another key addition to the team working on Gears of War at Black Tusk in Vancouver, bringing in the series cinematics director from Epic Games.

Greg M. Mitchell started at Epic in 2006, working as a Digital Cinematographer on the first Gears of War for both Xbox 360 and PC. He was promoted to Cinematics Director in 2007, and in the time since he has worked on virtually every game that has come out of Epic: Shadow Complex, Infinity Blade and, of course, more Gears of War.

While Mitchell didn't specify his new role at Black Tusk when he tweeted the news yesterday, it's near certain that he'll be working on the cinematics for the new Gears title.
