Amid many high profile departures in several game companies, such as Uncharted creator Amy Hennig leaving Naughty Dog to work on Visceral Games’ new Star Wars title, it seems that The Last of Us lead artist Nate Wells is currently working at Giant Sparrow as its art director. This is the same developer behind The Unfinished Swan which released for PS3 last year.

It’s currently indicated Wells’ Twitter page that he now works at the indie studio though his LinkedIn page still says he’s at Naughty Dog. It could be that his LinkedIn hasn’t been updated yet, especially since Wells is more active on Twitter. Regardless, there’s been no official word from Naughty Dog on Wells’ departure. Unlike Amy Hennig, Wells was working at Naughty Dog since 2012.

It’s certainly interesting that Wells left considering that The Last of Us: Remastered will be out for PS4 this June. What are your thoughts on what could’ve prompted his leaving? Let us know in the comments.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Joined in 2012 at the back end of TLOU’s development and moved to one of Sony Santa Monica’s incubation studios.

    Naturally because Xbots have no games to play I expect them to make an issue of this.

      You’re uninformed. Their game division is doing very well at the moment, with a 64% increase over the year before, and the PS4 is already at 7m units sold, which is over 40% of the current gen console market (including Wii U).
