Annapurna Interactive has announced who will lead its new in-house development studio. According to the company, the studio will be led by Solar Ash director Chelsea Hash.
In addition to Hash, Annapurna has also hired technical director Brett Lajzer, senior producer Evan Hembacher, art director Cosimo Galluzzi and environmental artist Nate Grove. The studio and its new staff are working on an undisclosed project.
Hash said in a statement, “We have worked closely with the folks at Annapurna Interactive for years and it has been an exciting next step for us to be able to fit into the team. We’re working on a new special experience and can’t wait to reveal more details.
Annapurna is usually a publishing company that works with independent developers – for example, Solar Ash is one of its published titles. In addition to Solar Ash, Hash worked on Annapurna’s first published game: What Remains of Edith Finch.
