Nate Wells, Art Director on Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, announced via Twitter that he has left the studio and joined on the team at Giant Sparrow, makers of 2012’s The Unfinished Swan. Wells detailed that he has now been involved with the studio for a few weeks, with his employment at Giant Sparrow having officially started on April 3rd as Art Director.
