Paul Rustchynsky recently announced on Twitter that he’s joined Slightly Mad Studios as game director for a new project. He said that he “can’t wait to share more” on what’s to come. Slightly Mad Studios is better known for its work on the Project CARS series.
Rustchynsky has had a rather tough time in the past few years. He rose to prominence as the director of Driveclub at Evolution Studios and despite the multitude of problems its launch had, the development team turned it into a worthwhile experience. After Evolution was shuttered, Rustchynsky joined Codemasters along with other former team members to work on Onrush.
Despite some decent critical reception, Onrush didn’t set sales charts on fire. Multiple team members including Rustchynsky were laid off and the development team is reportedly now working to support the main Codemasters studio. Regardless, we’re interested to see what Rustchynsky has been working on and how Slightly Mad Studios will utilize his experience.
Today is the beginning of my new adventure at Slightly Mad Studios!
