Midway announced this morning the appointment of David Sears as its creative director at Surreal Studios, an internal development team. With more than 10 years of experience in game design and development, Sears will report directly to Alan Patmore, head of Surreal Software. He is currently slated to work on an unannounced next-gen project for the company.
“David brings unequalled industry experience and design knowledge to the studio and we are very excited to have him on board,” said Patmore. “David’s experience at developing games that appeal to a very large audience make him a key hire for Surreal and Midway as we gear up for next generation development.”
Sears joins Midway from Zipper Interactive, where he served as lead designer and creative director of the [i]SOCOM[/i] series.
