Neil Druckmann is now co-president of Naughty Dog. Druckmann joins Evan Wells to helm the studio, which is famous for the Uncharted and The Last of Us series.
Druckmann joined Naughty Dog in 2004, and was creative director and writer of 2013’s The Last of Us, lead co-writer of 2016’s Uncharted 4 and creative director and lead co-writer of 2020’s The Last of Us 2 (you can read our review here). He was also vice president of the studio for three years. Alison Mori (previously director of operations) and Christian Gyrling (previously co-director of programming) are the new vice presidents of Naughty Dog.
Druckmann tweeted about it on the weekend. He also said that he will still be writing and directing.
It is unknown what Naughty Dog’s next game will be. Maybe something like The Last of Us 2 for PS5? We might have to wait until next year to hear more.
