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.
"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?
