The Last of Us lead character artist Michael Knowland is the latest in a growing line of Naughty Dog team members to leave the studio.

Knowland updated his LinkedIn profile to mark the end of his time at Naughty Dog, as spotted by Superannuation. It’s worth noting that he was working on The Last of Us and not Uncharted 4.

There have been a few high-profile departures at Naughty Dog and Sony’s wider family of studios. Back in March, award-winning Uncharted scribe Amy Hennig left the company after ten years, followed by a statement from the team.

Then, Uncharted 3 game director Justin Richmond left for Riot Games, God of War 3’s director left Sony Santa Monica, as did Seth Killian, among others.

We’ll have more on where Knowland ends up if we hear more.
