Ubisoft has hired 4 veteran Telltale Games employees for their San Francisco office. Narrative Director Pierre Shorette, Creative Producer Adam Sarasohn, and Senior Design Editors Dennis Lenart and Nick Herman are all joining Ubisoft. They have worked on some awesome games like Tales from the Borderlands, The Walking Dead, and The Wolf Among Us. Now, these former Telltale employees will be working on narratives for future Ubisoft projects.

For 4 years, Sarasohn oversaw developer teams as a producer with Telltale and was responsible for training new producers. Lenart worked in the direction and cinematics departments for the first season of The Walking Dead before leading Minecraft: Story Mode as the creative director. Herman was with Telltale from the start and was their first cinematic artist. He oversaw season one of The Walking Dead as lead cinematic artist and director.
