Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Creative Director Shaun Escayg Leaves Naughty Dog

We’ve learned the creative director for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Shaun Escayg, has parted ways with the studio behind the game – Naughty Dog.

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

It’s worth pointing out that Escayg had worked at the developer for seven years.

In an accompanying Instagram post, Escayg posted an image of The Avengers logo with the caption “To new adventures—bring it 2018!,” leading us to believe he’s moved on to work for Crystal Dynamics new Avengers game.

    One less progressive at ND, 100 more to go. This is not good news for the Avengers game, but it is a combination of Marvel and Disney, so it was doomed to begin with.

    Not with Disneys luck.

    There may be hope that it won’t make Life is Strange look like original Doom at its launch since Marvel replaced the head that drove them down the road to where they are today.

    Makes me wonder how many SJW characters they’ll try to cram in it.

    Plot twist – it’s the new Avengers – black female Ironman, Korean Hulk, female Wolverine, etc.

    I imagine he’s the reason people are leaving en masse.

    Another one bites the dust. It’s never a good sign when talent leaves a development studio. I suspect that TLOU Part 2: Electric Boogaloo isn’t going well.

    My assumption at this point is that Ellie’s lesbianism is going to be a major plot point.

    i had forgotten this game existed
    even Golden Abbys stayed longer in my radar, and i don’t even own a VitaHell i didn’t even knew this had come out alrready
    when something as big as this comes out and there is no buzz about it anywhere on the web you know someone fucked up

    They had to take the progressive route and make a game about the most boring female characters in the Uncharted series just because they bring a lot of diversity to the series, a Spin-Off with a young Sully or with Elena as the main character might have been a lot better

    I’d take young Sully over Elena any day
    ALso, there was nothing wrong with Cloe, people actually liked her
    Niggrine on the other hand, People have been hating her since the fitst virtue signaling trailer showed her off

    They already have a female Wolverine, her name is X-23 and she’s hot…which probably means they won’t use her in future games…fuck.

    The issue is that they made X-23 take Wolverine’s place and costume on the team.
