Uncharted / The Last of Us creator leaves Naughty Dog”

Straley joined Naughty Dog in 1999 as a texture artist for Crash Team Racing, over the years moving into directorial roles for the Uncharted series and as gameplay director on The Last of Us.

Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann, who often worked closely with Straley, tweeted, "Bruce Straley has been my mentor, directing partner, & friend". And for me, I can attribute much of my own personal growth as a game developer to having worked alongside his wonderful talent for more than twenty years.

After 18 years with the company, longtime game director and artist Bruce Straley is leaving Naughty Dog. "Naughty Dog is home".

Find the full departure message from Straley below.

Naughty Dog is one of the most beloved developers in gaming, with almost all of their games since the mid-nineties receiving critical acclaim.

Having a hand in several of the studio's (and gaming's) most acclaimed titles of the past decade, Naughty Dog's Bruce Straley has had a storied history and career with the iconic game studio, with Straley having announced that his time with the company is coming to an end. "With the deepest gratitude - thank you to everyone I've gotten to work with over the years. And through it all, I'm even more fortunate to be able to count him as a friend". I mean, it was also extremely intimidating, but the energy and determination to make something great, something we could all be proud of, was infectious.

Straley closed his open letter by sincerely thanking the fans, as knowing he was "part of creating something that touched or moved", people made "this whole thing worthwhile".

In his post, Straley notes that he doesn't have anything to announce in regards to his next project or position, but that he is excited to "continue the journey into the creative process" in the next chapter of his career.
