Trou­ble in par­adise?


Sev­eral key Naughty Dog staffers have left the stu­dio since 2014, in­clud­ing long­time

Un­charted cre­ative di­rec­tor Amy Hen­nig,

Un­charted 3 di­rec­tor Justin Rich­mond, lead char­ac­ter artist Michael Know­land, and art di­rec­tor Nate Wells. Ac­tor Alan Tudyk has come out and said that “weird changes” con­vinced him and fel­low voice artist Todd Stash­wick to walk away from

Un­charted 4 too.

Neil Druck­mann, cre­ative co-di­rec­tor, ad­dresses the shift: “We pitched a pretty new story to the team, kind of like a new di­rec­tion… A lot of things were pretty rough and just slot­ted in, so there was an end­ing, but it wasn’t as well de­fined. At some point we de­fined more of the [plot] thread and a more de­fin­i­tive end­ing, and did a sec­ond pitch for the team.”
