Default New MS studio The Initiative

Seems Microsoft has been busy hiring talent for its SoCal based studio The Initiative that have worked at places such as SONY Santa Monica, Crystal Dynamics and Rockstar.

The head of Microsoft's new studio, The Initiative, has taken on a wealth of new talent from a number of high profile studios, including Sony-exclusive Santa Monica Studio, Rockstar and Crystal Dynamics.

Studio head Darrell Gallagher originally made the announcement on LinkedIn, but has since deleted the post. However, ResetEra's CrimsonEclipse was able to take a screenshot before the post was removed.
New additions to the team include God of War (2018)'s lead producer Brian Westergaard, Rockstar's Christian Cantamessa, Daniel Neuburger from Crystal Dynamics, and Microsoft's own senior director of portfolio planning, Blake Fischer.

Annie Lohr - an experienced recruiter who's worked at Riot, Respawn, and EA - also joins the team along with ex-Crystal Dynamic's Lindsey McQueeney, who will be The Initiative's new HR & Culture Manager.

It's unclear why the post was deleted, but many of the new appointees have shared their new positions on their own LinkedIn profiles (Westergaard, Neuburger, Lohr, McQueeney).
