Yesterday we reported that a former employee of Naughty Dog claimed that he was a victim of sexual harassment. Today on their blog, Naughty Dog issued a statement on the matter.

We have recently read on social media that an ex-employee of Naughty Dog, Dave Ballard, claims he was sexually harassed when he worked at Naughty Dog. We have not found any evidence of having received allegations from Mr. Ballard that he was harassed in any way at Naughty Dog or Sony Interactive Entertainment. Harassment and inappropriate conduct have no place at Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment. We have taken and always will take reports of sexual harassment and other workplace grievances very seriously. We value every single person who works at Naughty Dog and Sony interactive Entertainment. It is of utmost importance to us that we maintain a safe, productive workplace environment that allows us all to channel our shared passion for making games.

As you can see, Naughty Dog claims they never had any evidence on these allegations. Hopefully Playstation will issue a statement on the matter. If this employee falsely claimed these allegations due to what is now happening in the entertainment industry, it could seriously damage his career.
