You can read it in full here, along with an accompanying message from Naughty Dog president Evan Wells.

Straley announced his departure on the studio's official blog. After the announcement of The Last of Us Part II late past year, Straley stated that he would be taking some time off and therefore won't return as Game Director for the sequel.

Co-director on PlayStation exclusives The Last of Us and Uncharted 4, Bruce Straley, will be leaving Naughty Dog after almost 2 decades. "They were pushing themselves to do things beyond what they even thought was possible, which in turn pushed me, and I loved it", Straley wrote of his time at the studio. Four years after that, he co-directed The Last of Us with Neil Druckmann. He worked as an artist on Crash Team Racing, the Jak and Daxter Trilogy, and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

In the recent statement, Straley explains that this time off was part of what led him to start "focusing in other directions", ultimately leading him to his decision to leave Naughty Dog.

Bruce Straley announced today that he will not be returning to Naughty Dog and he'll be moving on to take on other creative offerings. Production on The Last of Us was pretty grueling for the team and while they were finishing it up, another team was beginning to shape what would be Uncharted 4. Bruce Straley arrives at the 17th Annual D.I.C.E awards at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on February 6, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As indicated in the book Blood, Sweat, and Pixels, Bruce Straley leaving Naughty Dog at this time isn't too shocking.

Naughty Dog is busy with The Last of Us: Part 2 but it was revealed in December 2016 that only one director responsible for the first game would be in charge. And for me, I can attribute much of my own personal growth as a game developer to having worked alongside his incredible talent for more than twenty years. "I'll miss you and your energy profoundly".
