Today the Twitter user @eXtas1stv discovered an interesting LinkedIn page. Simon Sherr, the technical animation consultant for the Unreal Engine 5 experience ”The Matrix Awakens” is working on developing a new studio for Undead Labs in Orlando Florida. This studio is supposedly working on animation technology for Unreal Engine 5 for Undead Labs and other Microsoft studios. On Sherr’s LinkedIn profile page he describes it like this:
”Developing a new microsoft studio under Undead Labs in Orlando Fl, Directing animation and Animation Technology in UE5 for Microsoft XGS Undead Labs’ “State of Decay 3” and fostering cross-studio animation technology collaboration and animation technology initiatives across XGS.”
Which makes it sound like this Undead Labs studio won’t solely work on Undead Labs, but will work on other Xbox Game Studios projects too.
