Amy Hennig, one of the main creative minds behind the Uncharted series has left Naughty Dog.
Amy Hennig, the creative director and writer on the Uncharted series, has left Sony first-party developer Naughty Dog.
Hennig was writing and leading development of Uncharted PS4. Her final day at the studio was Monday, March 3. Hennig recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with Naughty Dog, where she served as director and writer on Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
A Sony representative confirmed the departure to IGN earlier today:
“We can confirm that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog. Amy has made significant contributions to the game industry and we appreciate all she has done for Naughty Dog. The development timeline of Uncharted will not be impacted.”
This is certainly a big loss for Sony and I’m sure we’ll hear more about just how this came about in the coming months.
