Update:

Nate Wells has revealed via Twitter that he is now working for Santa Monica-based Naughty Dog.

Original story:

Three long-serving employees— including the studio’s founder—have left Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly.

Adrian Chmielarz, along with artists Andrzej Poznanski and Michal Kosieradzki, left the company last week to work on an as-yet unknown project.

The Epic-owned studio is currently working on Gears of War: Judgement.

"Over the past decade, [Chmielarz, Poznanski, and Kosieradzki] have been instrumental in building People Can Fly into the talented team that it is today,” said Epic Games president Mike Capps.

“We wish them well in their future endeavours.”

Chmielarz was creative director at People Can Fly when he left. Poznanski was a lead artist, and Kosieradzki a principal artist.

"Gears fans, you're going to love Judgment. It's in great hands. And don't worry, you'll hear about my plans soon enough," tweeted Chmielarz.

These departures come on the heels of Epic Games producer Rod Fergusson leaving the company to work on Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite.

Gears of War prequel Gears of War: Judgement is due out in March next year.
