Portal Dev Leaves Valve For Airtight
Swift is known for working on the student project, Narbacular Drop, which evolved into the brilliant Portal at Valve. She served as team lead on Portal, and also worked on both Left 4 Dead titles. Swift will now be a project lead at Dark Void studio Airtight games, with the remit of developing diverse titles, described as Airtight president Jim Deal as a "strategic move by Airtight Games into new and broader gaming markets.”
"I've learned so much and had some amazing experiences at Valve," Swift said. "But when I heard I had the opportunity to work on innovative titles with my friends over at Airtight, I couldn't pass it up."
It's uncertain how the move will affect thhe development of Portal 2, but let's face it, Valve don't tend to rush things out the door. Team Fortress 2 anyone?
