Uncharted PS4 writer leaves Naughty Dog

Writer Amy Hennig has departed from developer Naughty Dog, a report which surfaced on IGN revealed. She was writing and leading development for the Uncharted game on PlayStation 4.

The news was later confirmed by Sony, who 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.”

According to the report, Hennig had her last day at Naughty Dog on March 3. She was allegedly “forced out” by Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, who served as creative director and game director respectively on The Last of Us.

Hennig has worked at Naughty Dog for over ten years, leading development for the Uncharted series as head writer and creative director.

Uncharted for the PS4 made it into headlines earlier this week when some alleged test videos were “leaked” online. The videos have since been confirmed as fake.
