Justin Richmond heads to Riot Games

Uncharted 4 game director quits

Another high ranking Naughty Dog employee working on the next Uncharted game has left the studio.

Uncharted 4 Game Director Justin Richmond has departed the firm to work for League of Legends developer Riot Games.

It follows the departure of creative director Amy Hennig, who was also a veteran of the Uncharted series. Both were believed to be in charge of the next game in the series, which is due for PlayStation 4.

Sony insists the departure has not impacted the release schedule of Uncharted 4, although we wouldn’t know if it had, as the game hasn’t had a release date. All we’ve seen of the next game in Sony’s lucrative series was a brief teaser trailer towards the end of last year.
