Pete Ellis – Design Director

Extended Showreel 2020 – The Last of Us Part II Contribution – 10:05



My name is Pete Ellis and I have a passion for narrative driven AAA single player games.  I’m currently working as a ‘Design Director’.

Before this I was ‘Associate Game Director’ at Firesprite in the UK working on a dark, story driven, narrative adventure, and before that I was a ‘Game Designer’ at Naughty Dog in Santa Monica, California, where I’ve worked on The Last of Us Part II.

I have experience working on first-person shooting games, having worked on Killzone Mercenary for the Playstation Vita, Killzone Shadow Fall for the Playstation 4 and RIGS: Mechanized Combat League for PSVR during my time as a Senior Designer at Guerrilla Cambridge in the UK.

Before this I worked at Frontier Developments, working on the open world, third-person, action adventure game The Outsider.  Prior to that I completed my Masters Degree at Teesside University, gaining a Distinction in ‘MA Computer Games Art’.
