Over a march of a development, Amy Hennig, who served as a author for a array for many years, over and left to work on a new Star Wars diversion alongside Visceral Games instead. There were nasty rumors that Naughty Dog heads Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley kicked her out, nonetheless a studio has denied that story.

When Hennig left, she sealed a non-disparagement agreement with a studio that would forestall both her and Naughty Dog from creation disastrous open comments about what had happened, according to people informed with a arrangement.”
