After Kingpin, Xatrix restructured and became Gray Matter Studios. Drew directed Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but was not involved in the Call of Duty games. From there, Drew became Chief Creative Officer for Vivendi Games, then president of 3D Studio's Tahoe division. He is currently (2010) Chief Creative Officer at Sierra.
