Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Creative Director and Writer Shaun Escayg is leaving Naughty Dog. Ecayg has been with the developer for seven years, joining the Last of Us team in the middle of development.
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.— Shaun Escayg (@ShaunEscayg) January 3, 2018
Escayg worked on The Last of Us and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End before taking a lead role in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Before that, he was an animator and animation supervisor at Blur Studio and ILM.
Where is he going? Well, a post on Instagram gives a solid hint. Escayg wrote about "new adventures" in 2018, with an image of the Avengers logo. That could mean he's moving over to Crystal Dynamics or Eidos Montreal to work on one of The Avengers Project games.
