A Look Back At Amy Hennig's Career So Far

GameInformer: Today the news broke that Naughty Dog's acclaimed writer and creative director Amy Hennig has left the company. While we don't know what her next project will be, it seems like an appropriate time to look back at the accomplishments of one of gaming's most respected developers. (Amy Hennig, Industry, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, PC, PS2, PS3, PS4, Retro, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Xbox)

What ever the circumstances it's a huge loss for ND and Sony! She easily ranks as one of, if not the, best creative directors and writers in the business! She honestly makes most game writers look like amateurs in comparison!

None of us can know what really happened, but u'd think if Sony was smart and really knew what they had, they'd be working their hardest to keep someone of her talent within the organization, even if it meant a move to a different studio! She's just too good to let go!

At this point; some smart developer/publisher will snatch her up, let her build her own team, and give her creative freedom to make what ever her ridiculously talented mind can come up with!

I look forward to playing what ever she ends up involved in next :-)

If you watch the "behind the scenes" video of Uncharted she talks a bit about the research she does for the settings and story. She left no stone un-turned. A real pity about her leaving ND but hopefully it was mutual.

Very sad to see Amy leave Naughty Dog, I strongly believe they lost one of the best writers in the gaming industry.

I'm confident ND has a great talent behind them and the next chapter in Uncharted series will be a successful entree.

Best of luck to Amy, any developer will more than benefit from her creativity and writing experience.

Can't wait to see what she does next.

When I first heard of Amy Hennig's departure, I kicked my dog, slapped my woman, and punched myself in the ol' toolbag. Then I got arrested. Thanks alot, Naughty Dog.
