there's probably some kind of contract they have with sony that doesn't allow them to do this


They can choose to leave once contracts are fulfilled (see Itagaki) or may just be sacked. But honestly I don't see either happening. Remember when Epic said they would love Gears on PS3? A person talking about something and actually acting on something are two different things.


Generally there is always a noncompete clause (unless someone specifically negotiates one not be included) in the contract that is effective even after the expiration of an employment contract. This prevents them from working/sharing/creating with another company or as their own for a set amount of time. It's usually a standard practice. Sure they could be asked to be released from a noncompete, but, it would not make any sense for Sony to allow them out of the clause.

Naughty Dog is lost up it's own butt right now wanting to only make interactive movies. There was even some article today somewhere where ND was wetting itself with some new motion capture bs.

Wake me up when they bring Jak back. And I say that as a PS4 owner.

That's weird. I thought they were making games. Award winning ones at that. Tell me more about these interactive movies.

A number of Naughty Dog staff left to form Big Red Button Games (they're making a Sonic game on the Wii U).

So my example is invalid just because you aren't too fond of IW? This isn't even a debate now on your part; now you're just trolling lol.


They're objectively not as good. People praise modern warfare way more than they should. It was a fun game but not amazing. Every game ND has pumped out since Uncharted has been great. This is pretty widely accepted now. I almost never played on PS3. I mostly used 360. But the blindness of some people over the Xbox One/PS4 war is staggering. PS4 is simply the better device to play on at the moment. Maybe XOne can make some really fabulous games in the near future but that remains to be seen. Desperate debates about Naughty Dog moving are just ludicrous, though.


I'm not sure what my argument had to do with Xbox One and PS4. My point was on the developers. And you can't tell someone that they're wrong when it comes to a subject like this just because you like one company more than another. Liking something is all down to someone and their tastes and it is subjective. Sure you don't like IW much and I get that but you can't tell someone they're wrong about something that can't be anything other than opinion. All I was trying to do was give an example. There are tons of similar situations with developers losing their luster after key people have left the team.
