Amy Hennig

Amy Hennig is a video game designer formerly employed by Naughty Dog. She previously worked for Electronic Arts as an artist/animator and game designer and then worked for Eidos, where she directed Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, Legacy of Kain: Defiance before joining Naughty Dog in 2003 when she assisted in the development of Jak 3.

In the Uncharted series, Hennig wrote and was the creative director for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.


On March 5th 2014 it was announced that Amy Hennig had left Naughty Dog.[1] Original claims made by IGN suggested that Hennig may have been "forced out" by The Last of Us directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley.[1] However, Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra later released an official statement in which they clarified that neither Druckmann or Straley were involved in Hennig's departure.[2] They wished Hennig the best for the future, and went on to criticize the original report, which they described as "unprofessional" and "hurtful".[2]

Hennig expressed her thanks to well-wishers on Twitter, saying that their kind words were very appreciated.[3] A Sony representative said that the development timeline of Uncharted would remain unchanged.[1]

Henning is currently employed at Visceral Games, and is working on an upcoming Star Wars game.
