Days Gone director Jeff Ross has joined Tomb Raider studio

Days Gone director Jeff Ross has joined Crystal Dynamics as design director.

Ross announced his new role on Tuesday in a tweet promoting nearly 50 job vacancies at the Square Enix studio.

“I’m excited to announce I now work at the amazing Crystal Dynamics as Design Director,” he wrote. “That’s all I can say other than I’m thrilled with the project, and especially the team of really wonderful people.”

Game director Ross and writer/director John Garvin, the two most senior creatives behind Days Gone, announced their departure from Sony’s Bend Studio in December 2020.

Both men had been with the Oregon, US-based studio (previously known as Eidetic) from its origin days in the mid-90s, having written and designed PSOne action game Syphon Filter and its sequels.


It was claimed the pair left Bend following internal conflict about the studio’s future direction after Sony rejected a pitch for Days Gone 2.

It was announced last September that Xbox had signed Crystal Dynamics to co-develop Perfect Dark, which is the debut title from its new in-house studio The Initiative.
