    Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Leaves Naughty Dog

    The PS3 generation saw one of Sony's best developers create a series that has become the face of PlayStation. Naughty Dog's new franchise about a snarky treasure hunter featured great visuals, crisp gameplay, and world class writing. The last of which would've been very different without head writer Amy Hennig.



    Now it appears that the future of Uncharted (as we know it) may be in doubt. Today insiders at Naughty Dog stated that Amy Hennig had left the studio after being "forced out" by the duo that created The Last of Us: Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann. Sony has verified the claim, first thanking Hennig for her contributions, and following with assurance that "Uncharted PS4's development will not be impacted".

    We will just have to wait and see. But I'm sure they will put someone in charge who knows what he or she is doing.
    We are talking about one of the biggest franchises on PS3 here.

    I'm sorry but what the flying f&ck? Who do these guys think they are? I mean don't get me wrong The Last Of Us is a good game, but is no where near Uncharted. And why the hell where they allowed to "force" somebody out of ND? Amy writing has been vital for the Uncharted franchise and now with no apparent reason she get's kicked off?

    Sad to hear that she was "forced out"

    Those dudes sound like jerks. I'm sure she won't have any trouble finding another great opportunity though.

    Amy Hennig Leaves Naughty Dog

    It's a shame you guys missed the drama from Amy and the Uncharted team about the Last of Us DLC.

    She called the story needlessly pandering to a socially abrasive niche that demeans the quality of narrative in its entirety and enforces the idea of the death of camaraderie.

    She did a seminar recently about how the increasing focus on sexuality is robbing readers, viewers, and gamers of themes that have been present in story since the time of antiquity: Friendship and camaraderie.

    By the end of it Amy said that we're entering an age where no one could write a story like Alls Quiet on the Western Front or Band of Brothers without people insisting that the men are gay for each other.
    if she got fired because of this she's a good person.

    There is really no point in speculating, we will likely never know the truth. You know the old saying, there is three sides to every story. His side, her side and the truth.

    Regardless, I wish her luck in whatever she decides to do next.

    Good thing I've never cared for Uncharted, but that aside, the situtation is hilarious, especially what Ps360's post added. Now I can't wait for the Band of Brothers remake where they're all homosexuals.

    Did she finish the Uncharted 4 story before leaving? Shame to see her leave, she was a good writer.

    Uncharted 4 is apparently unaffected so either she's written her bit already or she wasn't writing for it. Either way, best of luck to her.

    Anyway, i look at the ' forced ' part of this story and first thing i think is that it is used out of context to suit the writer, likely that a clash of creative ideals meant someone would have to concede defeat or walk if they felt it was no longer the challenge they wanted, she walked because she could, you think she'll actually have trouble finding a job with that resume? Not a chance.
    People want there to be drama behind every story so nobody can just 'leave' a big company, it has to be because of discrimination or summat.
