Uncharted 4 Story Changed "100 Percent" After Hennig Left
Last year, Uncharted actor Nolan North said the departure of lead writer Amy Hennig from Naughty Dog set the project back 8 months.
Apparently, there was a very good reason.
In a new AP interview with creative director Neil Druckmann, we find the story changed "100 percent" after Druckmann and producer Bruce Straley came on board after Hennig and Justin Richmond left. Druckmann and Straley worked on the first two Uncharted titles and the breakout new IP The Last Of Us, and were named co-directors of Uncharted 4 in June 2014.
Changing the story "100 percent" sounds daunting and perhaps a little concerning on the part of the fan but hey, we've got faith. Elsewhere in the interview, Straley said the new Uncharted is the "biggest, most ambitious" game Naughty Dog has ever made:
"We want to do this justice. We want it to be a mind-blowing, eye-popping, sweaty-palms adventure. Everybody is bleeding out of their eye sockets to make it come together. We want to make sure Drake is sent off properly."
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is scheduled to launch on April 26 exclusively for PlayStation 4. This past week, the team released what they called the "best trailer they'd ever done;" if you missed it, check it out here. It's just plain incredible:
