From a much bigger interview - http://www.gameinfor...last-of-us.aspx
Interesting as there has obviously been a lot of public confusion about what is going on at ND. I'm still certain the game is going to move to be grittier like TLoU and that might have caused a split in the camp, and then in return directors/leads leaving.
