Naughty Dog Designer Trades Game Development For Academia


Posted April 30, 2012 - By Adam Rosenberg

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Multiplayer Beta -- Thoughts, Feelings,

Naughty Dog designer Richard Lemarchand, a lead player in the development of the Uncharted series, is moving on after eight years with the company. His next destination is the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, Gamasutra reports. The same place that turned out luminaries like Kellee Santiago and Jenova Chen.

Lemarchand sees the move as coming at "a natural transition point," following the late 2011 release of the third Uncharted title, Drake's Deception. His plan now, in addition to teaching, is to move away from blockbuster game development. Lemarchand will be taking on a research project involving experimental game development in addition to his teaching role. 

For more on this news in Lemarchand's own words, be sure to check out Gamasutra's new interview.
