Developer Biography

After receiving a B.A. from Beloit College and an MFA in Creative Writing from USC, Haris soon realized he had no discernible skills with which to make a living. This despite being a finalist in the American Theater Festival for his one act play, Armageddon. Advertising beckoned.

After several years writing and producing award winning radio and television commercials, Haris sold his first screenplay, Save the Dog, which was later produced as a Disney Sunday Night movie.

Haris has written scripts for Universal, Columbia, Twentieth Century Fox, Disney, Disney Feature Animation, and Paramount. His original screenplay, A Saintly Switch was produced for ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney. It was directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starred David Alan Grier and Viveca Fox.

He wrote the script for Dragonshard, a PC game from Atari and Liquid Entertainment. Call of Juarez, a game he wrote for Techland and Ubisoft, was released in 2007. Kane's Wrath, the expansion to the best-selling Command and Conquer Tiberium Wars, was released in 2008. Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 was also released in 2008 and was nominated for a Writer's Guild of America Award. Call of Juarez 2: Bound in Blood arrived in stores in July, 2009. Dead Island was released in 2011, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Company of Heroes 2 came out in 2013. Dying Light was released in 2015 and stayed on the top of the sales charts for the next three months.

Haris most recently has been working as a writer and a narrative designer on games for 2K and Sony Computer Entertainment.
