Uncharted: The Lost Legacy was fronted by a fresh crop of Naughty Dog staffers, and it always felt to us like a “passing of the guard” type project. However, creative director Shaun Escayg is leaving, having also contributed to the development of The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. There’s no word on where he’s heading next.

We actually met Shaun for all of about 10 minutes last year, and he described taking the reins on The Lost Legacy as “a ton of pressure, really thrilling, and really scary”. It sounds like he learned a lot from the opportunity, though, so we wish him all the best with his next endeavour. There’s not many people who can say they made the best Uncharted…

Update: Looks like Shaun's off to Crystal Dynamics to work on the studio's upcoming Avengers game.
