    Yes but none of them have spoken ill about Naughty Dog, they just wanted a change of scenery.

    Developers do it all the time. Sometimes they just want to work either on smaller projects, or feel like they need new challenges. It's nothing new.

    The two people who left Naughty Dog said it was their own choice and still talk nothing but good things about studio.

    Yeah I know, but When do you ever hear publicly two people leaving From a Gaming Studio the same Month?. It's Just weird That's all, I never hear anything like this. This is a first for me I'm just surprise as other people On youtube lol. It's Probably Big news Since we really never Hear anything Like This.

    It is kind of strange, but I doubt it's anything other than just wanting to try something different. After all, their games are hardly financial failures...

    Hmm I do not usually see such stories. Not entirely sure it is the most relevant but it is certainly game related, then again such things would be a story in other creative industries I guess.

    Not sure what else he had done so I looked him up. Seems he took the artist to game director path.

    I just hope they still continue releasing quality games like they did until now.

    I spent more time trying to figure out how the hell anyone can capitalize random words like that and not punch themselves in the face repeatedly for doing so, than I did caring about the actual topic. Chances are the two of them went to work on bigger and better things. Uncharted pretty much passed its prime, it was time to move on anyway.

    Update: My apologies I'm just so used to caps, also to the response for what you just said about Uncharted.

    I agree The same can be said about Assassin Creed.

    Happy now? "I kid I kid I joke I joke" (In my niko bellic voice).

    I'd want a change of scenery too if I had to create games based in the same universe and have the same characters with a slightly different plot each time too. It must get boring creating the same types of projects over and over again.
