It looks like another Naughty Dog employee might have left the studio.
Worlds Factory pointed out that Nate Wells no longer lists himself as an employee of Naughty Dog. Nate Wells was the lead artist for The Last of Us. His twitter profile now shows that he’s the “Art Director” for Giant Sparrow. This is the studio that developed The Unfinished Swan.
Here’s what he tweeted:
Hmmm….seem to be some threads here. Yes, I joined the wild, wacky, and ultimately brilliant folks at #GiantSparrow on April 3rd.
Nate Wells has worked on a lot of different games over the years. Pretty sure he’ll be able to put his experience to good use at Giant Sparrow.
