MMO developer Red 5 Studios, founded by key members of the World of Warcraft team, announced that Scott Youngblood, acclaimed lead designer of StarSiege: Tribes, Tribes 2, and alternate-reality game Majestic, has accepted an undisclosed position at the Aliso Viejo, California studio.

Before joining Red 5, Scott worked at Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) where he was the lead multiplayer designer on Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror. Scott joins other well-known designers at Red 5 including Ed Stark, creative director for Dungeons & Dragons 3.0 and 3.5, and David Williams, lead designer of the hit collectible card games (CCG) Legend of the Five Rings, Doomtown, and City of Heroes CCG.

"Scott is exactly the caliber of team member we're looking for at Red 5," said Mark Kern, president and CEO of Red 5 Studios. "We founded this company on passion and vision, two qualities that Scott has embodied throughout his career as a top-tier game designer. Scott's vision directly complements ours, and we're excited about having him join our growing team."

"When Mark asked me to join Red 5, I was blown away by the vast and vibrant world they're creating and by the company they're building," said Youngblood. "It's a combination I couldn't refuse."
