Uncharted series creative director and writer Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog, Sony confirmed.
After “trusted sources close to Naughty Dog” told IGN of Hennig’s departure, Sony issued the following statement:
“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.”
IGN’s sources claim Hennig was “forced out” by The Last of Us creative director and writer Neil Druckmann and game director Bruce Straley, who might now take over the Uncharted series. Sony’s comment did not touch upon this issue.
