The Last Of Us Lead Character Artist Departs Naughty Dog

Posted April 29, 2014 by Ivan "Tech Curse" Mashkov in News
The Last of Us

There have been a number of recent departures from Naughty Dog and now the trend continues with Micheal Knowland, the Lead Character Artist on The Last of Us. This news appeared courtesy of Superannuation, who was the first to notice the changes in Knowland’s Linkedin profile.

He was working on The Last of Us for most of his three years at the company. Previously he worked for Frontier Developments, the developer behind the Xbox One title Zoo Tycoon and Elite: Dangerous, which is currently in beta and slated for a 2014 release.

A number of prominent people at Naughty Dog have left the company over the past month. It all started with Amy Hennig, when she left the company earlier in April and joined Visceral Games to help make a Star Wars game. We know nothing of the project, except that it is one of three Star Wars games currently being made by EA as part of a deal with Disney.

All of these departures from Naughty Dog have raised concerns that Uncharted 4 could suffer as a result, thought there isn’t any indication that it may be the case. All of these departures seem to be part of a normal transition to new hardware, though we can’t be certain. Here at Gaming Precision we’ll be eagerly awaiting E3, the industry’s premier event, to see more of Uncharted 4 and how these changes affect the  game.
