What was the biggest challenge Naughty Dog as a team had to go through?

Growing to become a multi-project company has been extremely difficult.

why is this extremely diffucult?
if you have 100 people,50 go to one project,and other 50 go to another project... and they can assist from time to time right?
bring on dlc!

When many AAA games are being made by far larger teams, I'd say splitting your fairly small team in two and keeping up to the company's quality standard would be quite difficult.

minimur121089d ago

agreed. for example a piece of news on herethe other datold us how only 80people were working on he order, and it still looks that high quality as a AAA title

Because expanding means getting new people in, who are not familair yet with how the way the studio operates and its design philosophy. Luckily for Naughty Dog they are so well respected and known they get the pick of the litter in terms of developers. Thats how they got the art director for Bioshock/System shock series and Thief.

What Sony just needs to do is keep them happy and give them creative freedom. Let the people who want to do Uncharted do Uncharted and the people that want to do a new IP do that. Least you want to do is create a Infinity ward situation or Ubisoft with Patrice Desilets.

If you saw the Grounded documentary of the making of the last of us, they actually split after Uncharted 2! I've just gone through and checked the credits of U2 U3 and TLoU and it's really split. There are some people that can work on both and switch over but it seems that people like Neil Druckman and some of the Leads have had to step up to much bigger roles that you just cant multitask.

In good news, there are a considerable amount of considerable people in the U3 crew who are not in TLoU crew. That means that they have been working on a new title for a couple of years now. Uncharted games release every 2 years, throw on an extra year to get used to next gen hardware and we're talking 2014! New IP would 2015, two new IP's in a row? Sony seems to let them do what ever they want, I just hope it isnt a Jak game, they're capable of so much more.

C'mon, you could have asked them anything, and you didn't even ask if they still eat mushrooms on their pizza? For shame.

My fav AMA ever was Arnold.

TrendyGamers1089d ago

Out of all the answers, I'm just glad that he wasn't called Ethan.

Story DLC will be nice. No MP DLC tho? I've got the platinum trophy and will trade this for GTAV if DLC isnt worth the extra money.

MattyG1089d ago

1 story dlc, 2 multiplayer dlcs.

ThisIsSolidSnake1089d ago

well idc what it just better hurry.GTAV is coming soon. This is also why i dont purchase season passes.

Stsonic1089d ago

A short story following Sam and henry would be cool.

@ThisIsSolidSnake

Why do they have to rush the DLC to beat GTAV? I would rather them be honest about the dlc and have it made after they ship a complete game then have them hold off on something that could have shipped on the disc just so they can release something quicker. Gamers can't have it both ways. They complain about DLC being stuff that shouldve been included with the game but they also want the dlc within 1 month of release. You can't have it both ways. I say ship a complete game, then think about cool DLC. That is how it should be done so they can take their time with it. Just my 2 cents.

Master-H1089d ago

I would definitely buy Unkarted lol but only it is made by the same team from Naughty Dog who made CRT, will pass on it if it's made by the LBP karting or the Modnation guys.
