Naughty Dog going the way of Insomniac?

But, I thought they only made movie games with no gameplay. Why would you want such a boring game company?

This thread is all kinds of stupid.

My initial reaction is "It will never happen." But we've seen it before. Anything's possible I suppose.

EGM is now "all kinds of stupid"? Interesting.....

I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Didn't they already lose some writers and game designers from uncharted series and last of us?

Yes, several in fact. That's exactly what happened at Bungie not long ago. There may be some truth to this.

There is always a big move at the beginning of the generation. The last generation was very long people forgot this. Also there is more social media now than back then and everything is reported now would not be news worthy years ago.

What has not been talked about is all the new hires since these people left.

Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

Insomniac was never owned by sony. They never wanted to be bought and they were always independent. Naughty dog is a Sony owned division. The closest studio that can go the way of insomniac that's making exclusives for the ps brand is Quantic dreams. They aren't owned by anyone.

Even if naughty dog were to leave the last of us is a game that was made for Sony and they would likely keep ownership of it.

They would have to make a whole new game (akin to bungie having no halo)...

Do you really think they would take a risk like that?

And why would they leave the leading brand and go to the console that is hardly keeping any exclusives?

Titanfall 2 to be multi plat as an example.

Considering how many employees have left in the last few months, the developer will soon be a shadow of its former self.
