In addition to the Uncharted games, Hennig also had a hand in the Jak and Daxter series and served as director, producer, and writer for Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2, and Legacy of Kain: Defiance.

According to Sony’s statement issued to Polygon, “the development timeline of Uncharted will not be impacted” by the shake up.
