Argentinean artist Ignacio “Nacho” Bazan Lazcano just announced he is joining UK based company Creative Assembly, the studio behind titles like TOTAL WAR: ARENA, ALIEN: ISOLATION and HALO WARS.

“I learned so much about the industry in the last decade” said Ignacio this afternoon to his friends and colleagues “and I really appreciate all the things that I learned in my country. Great companies such as NGD Studio and Sabarasa gave me the tools and the encouragement that I needed to be the artist and the person that I am today. I only want to say that I´m proud for everything. Thank you!!”

The project he is assigned to as “Concept Artist” remains a secret, “I don’t even know!” he assures.

We wish him well in this new adventure and we hope soon he can share his magic with the world.
