Is Uncharted 4 In Trouble?

The Late Night Gamer: There is understandably a good chance many of you are not aware of who Amy Hennig is. She is an industry veteran who is most known for her work as creative director on the Uncharted series. The PS3 Uncharted trilogy remains to this day one of the most commercially and critically successful franchises Playstation has had, largely due to the game’s excellent team behind it. As Creative Director, Amy Hennig was one of the main forces to keep the games moving in the direction they were. Now with a fourth entry already being teased and the team hard at work on it, I can only be puzzled as to why one of the big bosses has left before the game is even finished.

"The development timeline of Uncharted will not be impacted."

Abash1627d ago

I think Amy already left her impact on the game's story before leaving, the game shouldn't be affected at all

SolidGear31626d ago

This is what I was thinking. Story is already finished.

U4 is in good experienced hands of Neil and Bruce.

Truly I wish she were still at Naughty dog helping to make a another great Uncharted game.

I think that she will not have any problem finding employment with a great video game studio, Sony should start another studio with her. I also think she would be a great novelist or screen writer because in my opinion the story driven games like the Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver along with Uncharted and Jack and Daxter are the best story driven games I have ever played.

Thanks Amy Hennig for helping to make truly memorable gaming experiences. Good luck on an even greater career but with your talent I don't think you need it.

She was a screenwriter before I do believe.

listenkids1626d ago

She wasn't really involved with the Jak series.

Eddie201011626d ago (Edited 1626d ago )

She worked on Jac and Daxter 3 (Game Director) and she has no screen writing credits on IMDB.

This is a good article, but the question has been answered. A quote from a GameStop article about Hennig's departure: "Sony has said that Hennig's departure will not affect the development of Uncharted on PS4." However, some people choose not to believe it, speculating that Druckmann and his partner have taken over writing responsibilities in Hennig's stead. Sony also refutes rumors that she was forced out.

Doesn't matter what studio it is, if the creative director is fired, clearly there are some issues about the direction of development for that certain title.

ramiuk11626d ago

was she FIRED? or just left

ArbitorChief1626d ago

Does it matter? Either way she was fired or left, there clearly are development issues with Uncharted 4 at Naughty Dog if they had to fire or force her to leave.

Afterlife1626d ago

Judging by her twitter. No she was fired or felt forced to leave. She stayed silent. If she left on her terms, she would have said thank you to Naughty dog, put down all the speculation, said she wanted to do something new, released a statement. But nothing.

ha ha ha ha wow look at this, a guy name arbitorchief trying to punch holes in this situation. Well, that's not surprising at all xbox fanboy

ArbitorChief1626d ago

I love Playstation and Uncharted 2 was one of my favourite games of all time... Just because I love the Halo games doesn't mean I don't love Playstation or I'm an Xbox fanboy. Grow up and stop being so insecure.

DevilishSix1626d ago

There are no issues, stop acting like she is lead of development. She created the stories. Stories are created at the beginning of development process. Her work was most likely complete already.

DJ1626d ago

Creative differences? Maybe Naughty Dog wants uncharted to be more like TLOU and she doesn't.

Thatguy-3101626d ago

Uncharted 3 wasn't a bad game but it wasn't no uncharted 2 Which Neil and Bruce were a part of.
