After finishing the first four Crash titles, and with the launch of the PlayStation2 the Naughty Dogs were ready to tackle a new character and new universe.

Almost 3 years of development went into the first Jak and Daxter title, launched in 2001, and another three years saw the release of the second and third titles.  

  • Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (2001)
  • JakII (2003)
  • Jak3 (2004)

The series went on to sell over 12 million copies, and was re-released as an updated trilogy for the PlayStation 3.  The second Jak title is one of the games I am most proud of.  

Some of the ideas the team had for combining story and game seamlessly were just a little out of our reach on the PS3.  But Naughty Dog fulfilled those dreams on Uncharted shortly after I left.
