David Votypka has joined the ranks of Ubisoft to act as their new Senior Creative Director. Votypka had previously led THQ - a company that has had increasing rivalry with Ubisoft in recent months. Votypka will be focussing on Ubisoft's Red Storm sector. Red Storm is best known for its work on the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six franchises. The studio, which is based in Cary, North Carolina, is currently working at Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, which will launch for platforms that include the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in March 2012.
Votypka's move to Ubisoft is the most recent movement in a series of rivalry between THQ and Ubisoft that began when former Assassin's Creed creative director announced that he would be leaving Ubisoft Montreal for THQ's new Montreal studio. He also attempted to court key members of his Ubisoft team which resulted in Ubisoft taking out a restraining order on THQ preventing them from taking staff.
Votypka's LinkedIn profile has been updated to show that he is now the creative director at Red Storm in North Carolina.
