Developers move on, and it’s common in the games industry. Much like the Uncharted creator, Amy Hennig, left Naughty Dog to pursue her career elsewhere. That’s nothing new for Shaun Escayg, the Creative Director for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy recently left Naughty Dog.
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. Left Behind, Uncharted 4 were fleeting and Uncharted The Lost Legacy pushed my creative growth even further- I will miss all my dogs.

However, that does not mean we won’t be hearing from him Escayg again. He’s joining Square Enix to work on the Avengers game, one of the most anticipated titles currently in development by the studio behind Rise of the Tomb Raider. Escayg posted the Avengers logo on his Instagram showing that he is working with Square Enix and Creative Assembly on the Avengers project.
