The Division Director Jumps Ship

The game director of Ubisoft’s mega-money title The Division has jumped ship to Io Interactive. The director in question, Ryan Barnard, who played a huge part in making The Division everything it is recently wrapped up production on the latest intellectual property from the company behind games such as Rainbow Six Siege and the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

His new role sees him take up the mantle of Gameplay Director, this means he will lead three individual teams on Io’s latest project, a reboot of the famed Hitman series. The teams Barnard leads will be primarily responsible for “gameplay, online and world” design.

Having seen what Barnard led teams are capable of with the release of The Division then Hitman fans should be excited about the prospect of him working on the latest installment in the franchise.

Has Barnard made the right move swapping the Agents of New York for Agent 47? Only time will tell. Do you think this will work or would you have preferred to have seen Barnard remain with Ubisoft and improve on an already stellar game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
