Naughty Dog Promotes Neil Druckmann to Co-President
Naughty Dog has also promoted both Alison Mori and Christian Gyrling, who will share the title of vice president for the company.
Yesterday, Naughty Dog released an announcement on its website with news of a few major promotions within the company.
Neil Druckmann is joining Evan Wells as Co-President of Naughty Dog. Druckmann has previously been vice-president for the company for almost three years now. Druckmann was also the director of The Last of Us Part II, which just released earlier this year.
On top of that, Alison Mori and Christian Gyrling have been promoted to Vice Presidents for the development studio. Before the promotion, Mori worked as the Director of Operations and Gyrling has previously been the Co-Director of Programming.
It’s not surprising Druckmann has been moved up to Co-President. The man has almost become the face of the company as he had led development on the biggest game ever for the company.
But now that he is sharing the top position at the company, has he moved into a position that would take him out of game development? I am sure this job lands him with a laundry list of new responsibilities. Plus, the new The Last of Us HBO show that he is producing will also pour some more responsibility on him. I am interested to see what direction he will steer Naughty dog in the near future.
Naughty Dog had just released The Last of Us Part II earlier this June for the PS4. The game is also backward compatible on the newly released PS5. Make sure to check out DualShockers’ official review of the game right here
