Justin Richmond, game director of Uncharted PS4 has reportedly left Naughty Dog. This news follows the departure of Uncharted’s Lead Writer Amy Hennig departure from Naughty Dog a few weeks ago and Driveclub Director Col Rodgers leaving Evolution Studios earlier in the week.
“I have in fact made the decision to leave Naughty Dog,” Richmond told IGN. “I love the company and the people and know that they will continue to create awesome games going forward. On a happier note, after careful consideration and exploration I have joined Riot Games. There is some really innovative stuff going on here that I can’t wait to be a part of.”
Richmond have overseen Uncharted 2: Among Thieves’ multiplayer and also worked as game director on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. He had been with Naughty Dog since 2008.
Sony have stated that this will not effect Uncharted 4 development and key timeline plots.
