Is there a difference between Creative Director and Game Director?

I think game director and creative director is not the same. So we'll have both.

I think so cause on AC4 Jean Gudeson was CD and Lord Ashraf was GD.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_director

'A creative director is a vital role in all of the arts and entertainment industries. In another sense, they can be seen as another element in any product development process. The creative director may also assume the roles of an art director, copywriter, or lead designer. The responsibilities of a creative director include leading the communication design, interactive design, and concept forward in any work assigned. For example, this responsibility is often seen in industries related to advertisement. The creative director is known to guide a team of employees with skills and experience related to graphic design, fine arts, motion graphics, and other creative industry fields.'



http://www.whatgamesare.com/game-director.html

'Similar to the Hollywood model, many larger projects now have a game director. The game director is a creative lead over the whole project, and acts as the final arbiter of what is and is not permitted in the game. Game director is often considered a natural progression of the career of game designer, but some directors come from other disciplines such as art or programming.

Unlike a lead designer, who is often considered one among equals with other leads, the game director is the boss. In smaller studios, the game director role usually does not exist or is filled by a producer. '

Thanks for clearing that up. Shade!

So... it sounds like the game director role is a heavier role than the creative one. Seems reasonable since it's a huge project according to what we've heard (10 studios, etc).

Creative Director: Ideas and designing, includes HUD and graphics related.

Game Director: Leader of game content.

That's what I thought.

Of course - it does depend on the company / team - since some do other things - but that's the 'basic' roles - however as with everything in life, it's not always simple.. LOL

No, the previous user already commented on that. AC4's Creative Director is Jean Guesdon and Ashraf is the Game Director.
