Naughty Dog Makes a Statement About Hennig’s Departure

Uncharted 2
Naughty Dog

Naughty Dog Co-Presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra have posted a statement about the news of head writer and director Amy Hennig’s departure from the studio.

In the statement, Wells and Balestra confirm Hennig’s leaving and say that she will be missed. They also make it know that they appreciate the “significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general.” And, of course, they wish her the best.

They also wanted to clear up some misinformation. It was originally reported by insider sources that Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, two of the directors of The Last of Us, were involved with her departure. Wells and Balestra assures us that this was not the case.

Normally, we wouldn’t respond to rumors and speculation on matters that are internal to Naughty Dog, but because the personal reputation of two of our employees is being damaged we needed to set the record straight.  There is nothing left to be said on this subject.  Now we’re going back to what we should be focused on – making games.

We also wish Hennig the best of luck and look forward to her contributions to the industry in the future.
