Martinchek’s most notable work as Senior Animator at Rockstar was the Western juggernaut Red Dead Redemption 2, which was clearly a big hitter in most aspects, including animation. Rockstar will surely miss a talented individual such as Martincheck.

The people he will be linking up with are mostly those whom he has worked with before at Naughty Dog Studios, delivering killer animation work to the likes of The Last of Us and Uncharted 4.

It’s worth noting in Cobb’s Tweet that he and Martinchek are shaking hands at an unnamed PlayStation studio.

Cobb is a Senior Game Designer at Sony and is currently working on an unannounced game that will probably be exclusive to PS4 (considering the fact that he’s working in Sony).

Since 2018, he had been assembling his team of designers and animators to work on this new project.

Considering how incredible their previous works together have been, this rekindling of old flames between Martinchek and Cobb could prove to be the start of something new and beautiful.
