Paul Robinson and Steve Hart head to Poland-based developer and publisher

Sniper: Ghost Warrior creator CI Games has hired two former developers from Rebellion and Guerrilla Games.

Ex-Rebellion senior producer Steve Hart has joined the firm as executive producer, and Paul Robinson has also been recruited to the firm's senior creative and design team.

During his five-year stint at Rebellion, Hart worked on a number of titles including Sniper Elite v2.

Robinson has previously worked on games such as Killzone 2, Comanche and Armoured Fist and Full Spectrum Warrior.

“This is a great opportunity to join an established company looking to cement its position as a serious player within the global games industry,” said Hart.

“CI Games vision, drive and determination to become a bona fide triple-A developer should be applauded and having seen the likes of Enemy Front & Lords of the Fallen in production, these are exciting times for the company and I’m honoured to be involved.”

Robinson added: “After more than two decades in game development in roles from AI programming, lead design, to game direction across a broad spectrum of genres, I am returning to my roots working on first person shooters with CI Games.

“Enemy Front is an interesting and fresh take on World War 2 shooters and a perfect opportunity for me to use my experience in storytelling and game direction to ensure that the project realises its full potential in those areas.”

As well as developing Sniper: Ghost Warrior, CI Games is currently developing titles such as Enemy Front and Lords of the Fallen.
