Amy Hennig's Departure Set Uncharted 4 Back 8 Months

One has to assume that when you lose leaders of a team, development has to take a hit.

Last year, we heard that Naughty Dog lost several high-ranking members of the team, including lead writer Amy Hennig. How much of an impact did this have?

Well, according to voice actor Nolan North, speaking during a Metrocon panel, they had already been shooting for 8 months and after Hennig left, it all got wiped away. When The Last Of Us directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley took over, they "wanted their own flavor." Now, however, the tone will undoubtedly be different.

Said North:

"It has to be, you know. You can't have a Robert Ludlum novel that's going to be the same as Stephen King. It's just that they're different styles. But it's true to the story."

This is probably a big reason why we're not getting the anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive this year. But the important thing is to get it right...right?

Now while the delay is regrettable, I believe this may work out for the better.

We have had three games under Henning's influence so it could be an excellent time to put a taste of Last of Us in this franchise.

I don't mind waiting because I know that Naughty Dog will give me a treat next year.

Makes sense, we know their both very capable but trying to adapt to someone else's vision can be difficult. Probably best they restarted.

Just get it right. If this is the 4th and final story for Drake then it has to be complete, and it needs to be perfect!

Can't wait to play it.
