Uncharted 4 game director departs Naughty Dog

Posted on March 27, 2014 AT 01:09pm

Uncharted 4 game director Justin Richmond has left Naughty Dog to join League of Legends developer Riot Games, he confirmed to IGN.

“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.”

Richmond’s egress follows Amy Hennig’s earlier this month, and marks the latest in a long list of departures and layoffs across several Sony studios. Both he and Hennig served as co-directors on Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Richmond was also one of the designers who handled Uncharted 2’s multiplayer.
