Uncharted: The Lost Legacy creative director Shaun Escayg departs Naughty Dog

After seven years at Naughty Dog, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy writer and creative director Shaun Escayg has announced that he is departing the studio.

He noted the change over Twitter earlier this week, thanking the studio for the creative growth he has experienced from working on games and expansions in the Uncharted and Last of Us series.

"Seven years ago I joined the talented team at Naughty Dog on a project still in its infancy, The Last Of Us. Well, the rest is history," said Escayg. "Left Behind, Uncharted 4 were fleeting and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy pushed my creative growth even further— I will miss all my dogs."

Escayg was notably both writer and creative director on Naughty Dog’s most recent release, the standalone Uncharted 4 expansion Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Before that, Escayg contributed his skills as an animator to The Last of Us, The Last of Us: Left Behind, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

While he did not note his next project in his Tweet, an Instagram post shared by the film and video game director seems to imply that he’ll be working with Marvel’s Avengers franchise in some capacity.

This also marks the second major departure the developer has seen in recent memory, following The Last of Us co-director Bruce Straley's departure from Naughty Dog late last year after a year-long sabbatical.
