Shaun Escayg, creative director on Naughty Dog‘s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, has left the famed developer after seven years. Shaun joined the developer in the early development years of the critically acclaimed The Last of Us.
Seven years ago I joined the talented team at @Naughty_Dog on a project still in its infancy, The Last Of Us. Well, the rest is history. Left Behind, Uncharted 4 were fleeting and Uncharted The Lost Legacy pushed my creative growth even further- I will miss all my dogs.
