Bruce Straley Leaves Naughty Dog

Bruce Straley:

It’s impossible to summarize 18 of the most influential years of my career in a blog post, but here we are — today, with the heaviest of hearts, I am announcing my departure from Naughty Dog.

i would prefer Druckman to leave the company ...Strahley was cool and from the "older" in terms of experience staff there

1. Let's not make this about anyone else
2. Druckman together with Bruce helmed two of the best ND games ever made.

naruga2502d ago (Edited 2502d ago )

i say this because Druckman has proved to be more problematic (or more of the same someone could say) in game developent, directing U4 to be a lot like movie rather than a game , removing genuine elements from the game and worst of all he s following the political intrusion trend in games

Genuine-User2502d ago

Let's not make up stuff out of thin air.

Uncharted 4 was codirected, if you didn't know already. So which gameplay elements were removed on Druckman's request?

whothedog2502d ago

Last of Us > Uncharted 2 > the rest :D, that sucks he is leaving.

NewMonday2501d ago

Druckman is Littlefinger

Eamon2501d ago

Actually naruga sort of has a point.

I did feel Uncharted 4 tried to be far too similar to The Last of Us. It took away from what made Uncharted games special in the first place.

While I believe that The Last of Us is superior to the entire Uncharted series, Uncharted 2 definitely remains the series' best. No other Uncharted game has managed to top it.

Man, you chat out of your ass sometimes..

Thanks Bruce for directing my two favourite games of all time.

Deep-throat2502d ago

This is the first time I agree with you. Straley is the last good game director at Naughty Dog.

@HeisenbergX
Relax bro. And NO, I know many things about ND. I played AND finished every ND game on PS consoles except Uncharted TLL.

generic-user-name2502d ago

You would say that now, only after he has left.

@Deep-throat - "This is the first time I agree with you. Straley is the last good game director at Naughty Dog."

I'll bet good money he said the exact same thing when Amy Hennig left

Dark_Knightmare22502d ago

You don't know shit you're a troll and straley is def not the last good director at nd

UCForce2502d ago

@Deep-Throat I'm not convinced by your word and your attitude.

"This is the first time I agree with you. Straley is the last good game director at Naughty Dog."

lol! didnt u say the same when Amy left... jeez!! in that case Xbox has none... Good luck!

guyman2502d ago

"I know many things about Naughty Dog" "Straley is the last good game director at Naughty Dog"

Firstly how does this article even concern you? Secondly, what right do you have saying Naughty dog have lost their last game director?

You dont know ANYTHING about the inner workings at ND let alone the credentials . I guess the studio's success is too much for you too handle.

I wonder where he's headed...please tell me it's not the dark side because they need exclusives.

81BX2502d ago

Hes not. Now you can rest your tin foil head on your pillow my friend!

SierraGuy2502d ago

Did I hurt your feelings @81BX. For the record I bought an Xbox one day one then traded it to someone for a PS4 because it made me depressed.

81BX2502d ago

@sierraguy
What are feelings? Must be something you protect in your safe room.

SierraGuy2502d ago

@81BX ...more of a safe house...the house of PlayStation.

Why leave when you can force other people out?

UCForce2502d ago

They volunteer to leave and move on. Not force.

alstruck2502d ago

Well one does need to become more corporate in order to drive other people out.. And I'm guessing not many people in games development like to do that

scofios2502d ago

Watt is happening at ND first Christop balestra and now bruce wtf ?
