Hmm, and here I thought Naughty Dog was a game developer studio. Silly me, I thought that they left the financial and marketing part to the video game publisher--SCE. I'm sure they are tasked to meet deadlines, and must give frequent updates on the progress, but they are afforded creative liberties in their management, deadlines, and risks as long as they produce quality products (Something not permitted in a corporation that must demonstrate growth to their shareholders every quarter) I mean, I get they belong to a corporation, Sony, but their department's focus is not to maximize profit.
Sure, maybe I was not specific enough. I should have not used "profit-driver corporation" because it's not a negative for many people, but it is for me. And this article will explain it a bit more: https://www.washington.edu/news/2006/01/09/profit-driven-corporations-can-make-management-blind-to-ethics-study-says/
