"With sincere and deep gratitude to Amy Hennig for her contributions to the Uncharted franchise," reads the line.

Hennig left Naughty Dog in March 2014 after more than a decade with the company. She worked on Uncharted 1-3, and was writing the fourth game. According to a report, Hennig was "forced out" by directors Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, though Naughty Dog has since denied this was the case.

A month after leaving Naughty Dog in 2014, Hennig joined Electronic Arts where she is now working on Dead Space developer Visceral Games' new Star Wars project. This game has yet to be formally announced, but is rumored to be an open-world title.
