Naughty Dog's Justin Richmond, who served as game director on both Uncharted 3
and the studio's upcoming PlayStation 4 game Uncharted 4
, has announced that he has left the company to join up with Riot Games.
"I have in fact made the decision to leave Naughty Dog," Richmond told IGN
. "I love the company and the people and know that they will continue to create awesome games going forward."
"On a happier note, after careful consideration and exploration I have joined Riot Games. There is some really innovative stuff going on here that I can't wait to be a part of."
Gamasutra has reached out to those involved for further comment.
Richmond's name may be fresh in your memory because Naughty Dog made a show of advertising his involvement with Uncharted 4
alongside Amy Hennig when it announced the game
late last year.
Hennig also left the studio
earlier this month.
