Tribes designer Scott Youngblood joins Red 5 studio.
Scott Youngblood, the lead designer of StarSiege: Tribes and Tribes 2, has left Sony Computer Entertainment America for Red 5 Studios, a new development house packed with ex-World of Warcraft developers, based in Aliso Viejo, California.
Mark Kern, president and CEO of Red 5 Studios, sees Youngblood as a valuable addition to his studio. “Scott is exactly the caliber of team member we’re looking for at Red 5. We founded this company on passion and vision, two qualities that Scott has embodied throughout his career as a top-tier game designer. Scott’s vision directly complements ours, and we’re excited about having him join our growing team.”
Youngblood shares his enthusiasm. “When Mark asked me to join Red 5, I was blown away by the vast and vibrant world they’re creating and by the company they’re building. It’s a combination I couldn’t refuse.”
