The Last of Us Lead Artist Leaves Naughty Dog

Nate Wells, the lead artist on Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, has parted ways with the studio.

Wells confirmed the news on his Twitter page, indicating that he will now be working as art director at Giant Sparrow, the indie developer that created The Unfinished SwanWorlds Factory notes that his LinkedIn page still says that he is at Naughty Dog, but that's probably just because he hasn't yet updated his profile.

With the recent departures of both Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond, it's clear something strange is going on over at Naughty Dog. Could Uncharted 4's development be in trouble?
