Nate Wells, lead artist on The Last Of Us, has left the studio. He follows other high profile departures including the Uncharted series' creative director and writer Amy Hennig, and Uncharted 4 director Justin Richmond.
Hmmm....seem to be some threads here. Yes, I joined the wild, wacky, and ultimately brilliant folks at #GiantSparrow on April 3rd.

Wells was a relatively new starter though, having only clocked up one year and eight months at the studio, after a 13 year stint at Irrational. Still, that's three big names all gone in less than a month. While he joins Giant Sparrow, Hennig left to front an EA Star Wars project and Richmond joined League Of Legend's dev Riot.
