Amy Hennig

It was only a few days ago when news broke that Amy Hennig, creative director of the Naughty Dog's iconic Uncharted series, had left the studio. It didn't take long for rumours to start spreading like wildfire that she hadn't left by her own choice, and was supposedly "forced out" by Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, two fellow developers from the team that was behind The Last of Us.

Thankfully, Naughty Dog Co-Presidents Evan wells and Christophe Balestra have provided a statement to help extinguish this speculation. Writing on the studio's website, they state that the the breaking news was "unprofessionally misreported" and that "Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann were not involved in what transpired." They go on to say how much the former employee would be missed, and how much they appreciate the "significant contributions that she made to Naughty Dog and industry in general." What do you make of the situation at Sony's most popular first party studio? Wish Hennig well with us in the comments section below.
