Naughty Dog isn’t ruling out making more Uncharted games, developer says​


“It’s a world we want to see more of,” says Lost Legacy’s creative director



Naughty Dog reportedly remains open to the possibility of making more Uncharted games.

PS5 remasters of the two most recent series entries, 2016’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and 2017’s standalone expansion Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, will be released on Friday.

Ahead of their arrival, GamesRadar asked Lost Legacy creative director Shaun Escayg and game director Kurt Margenau whether Naughty Dog could make a new Uncharted game at some point.

“I think we can say for certain that we can never say never,” said Margenau, who also served as lead cinematic animator on Uncharted 4.

“Yeah. Uncharted is a franchise we love – that the studio loves, I love, and [Uncharted 4 co-lead designer] Kurt loves,” he added. “It’s a world we want to see more of. So I can certainly say that.”

The PS5 remasters will be released in the form of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which costs $49.99 / £44.99 / €49.99.

Owners of Uncharted 4, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy or the digital bundle containing both games will be able to upgrade to the PS5 release for $10 / £10 / €10 at launch and carry over their save data and trophies.

VGC’s Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection review said “Naughty Dog’s first outing on the PlayStation 5 is an incredibly strong one, and only makes us even more excited for what it has coming next, and what it will be able to do with this technology.”

It really is time that Sony starts prepping for the next big event. We need to know and see what Naughty Dog is up to.

Seemingly they are working on so many projects. How would they manage all that? They also had to work on the TLOU HBO show and on the Uncharted movie (probably to a much minor degree than the TV show which directly involved Neil Druckmann).

Then there are the rumors of a Sci Fi game from ND, a Fantasy game, TLOU Remake and a Multiplayer game? As good as Naughty Dog are, they probably don't have enough people for all of that. Would be great to officially see what they are actually working on that we could realistically see in the next 1-2 years.

Sony, stop hating and removing your white (straight, cis) male protagonists and make Uncharted 5 as main playable character.

Nothing wrong with more Uncharted but I rather have Naughty Dog try something new
They can do both, ND and the number of 1st party studios have been growing, now there's way more people there. So if they want they could work at the same time on:
-Uncharted 4
-New (single player focused) ND IP
-TLOU3

I need Uncharted in my life, just don't fuck with U4 ending and make a damn prequel ffs. So many possible adventures with Drake and Sully.. and Rika and Eddie or Sam.

And while we are it, make it in the veins of the original Trilogy. Dialogues were genuinely fun and honest in U1-U2-U3, in U4 they're often cringe-inducing only. I want to hear Drake's wit and not Druckmann trying to be fun and clever, so unless he can resist making his characters sound like dumb teenagers as it happened at times in U4, just hire someone else.

Stop the BS, they don’t do this. LITERALLY, all of their games have white people, black people, etc.

Also, people need to stop allowing their “video game conspiracies” to thrive vicariously through their political views.

If it’s a joke, cool. If not, it’s just strange.

That’s not what you should be concerned about while playing, regardless lol.

An incredibly bland but vastly popular franchise getting new entries.

This is what you get when Indiana Jones is dead video game-wise.

I’d honestly rather not. For as nice looking as these games were they weren’t really that fun to play.

And I finished them all. UC has some of the worst shooting mechanics of any TPS I’ve ever played.
U4 shooting is so good the Multiplayer is still active after 6 years, GTFO with your fake opinions.

I love Uncharted, but I feel it could be a good time for a pause and have 2 new IPs from Naughty Dog this gen rather than just one. They didn’t actually create new IP during the entire PS4 gen and I’d love to see them create as much new as possible this gen.
As much as I love the Uncharted series, they left UC4 on a perfect ”story is over for now, but we might be back at some point”-note.

It can be a valuable IP to bring back next gen or something, I’m afraid of Uncharted becoming an equivalent of ”Halo, Gears, Forza”. Some people like to have more of those franchises in a never ending stream but I rather get new fresh IPs from Sonys best studios, something they have always exceled at but Naughty Dog seemingly stopped doing that from PS3 and onwards.

I said protagonist, not characters. They have been removing the white (straight) male progratonists from all their series (both new IP and existing franchises) and seems that Kratos will be the next one. It's a fact, the only exception is Death Stranding, and pretty much because it's Kojima and had his fetish with Norman Reedus. Even for the furry protagonist they had to include a female furry (even if in this case didn't replace him, was a coprotagonist instead).

Might be unpopular opinion but Nathan drake and story is done for me. Closure has been received.

Uncharted needs to have new protagonist. If they aren't the money hungry devs and have some balls, they will not revive Drake.

Half of the over two dozens of Sony games that are in development are new IP. Sony frequently releases new IPs. All Sony teams are growing to have more tracks to develop more projects at the same time.

So it's perfectly compatible to make a new IP and a new Uncharted after they release all their TLOU stuff later this year or early next one (tv show, MP game, TLOU1 remake, TLOU2 PS5 and probably Director's Cut bundle). And maybe even at the same time they can make TLOU3 too.

They released Uncharted 4 back in 2016, 6 years ago. If they start to develop Uncharted this or next year, add 5 or 6 years more for the release: it would be released in 2027 or 2028, 10 or 11 years after Uncharted 4 for PS6 and maybe crossgen. It doesn't make sense to wait more, it's already too much.

Controversial Opinion: Uncharted 4/LL is better than TLoU2.

So indeed I'd be in favor of an Uncharted 6 more than a TLoU3 or wokewashed remake (urh...)

Just a lil finicky
Loved the first 3 especially the second one, it was simply an incredible game, saying that I absolutely hated the fourth.

Boring boring boring.

Personally, I hope they move on to something new and fresh, one of the best studios out there if not the best, give us something new, please.

Give us a Sci-fi game please -Naughty Dog.

Please no more, make a new series
Ugh, do something else please, nobody want to play with nate's gender fluid non-binary daughter...

And no offense, but after raising the bar so high with tlou2 combat, unchy combat looks like shit without blood or gore.
Basically this

Unless there gonna radically reboot it. The tired 3rd person, regenerating health, linear dude shooter has got about as good as it's gonna get.

I think if it was structured like old school resident evil or MGS it could work well.

For the love of good have some more interesting enemy's to fight.

Imagine a new episode made on Next-Gen only, set on a tropical exotic setting ala Drake's Fortune and made with the best graphics you've ever seen, featuring the younger Drake seen in Panama in U4, Sully, Eddie & Rika, using the gameplay mechanics of U4 made to good use, and a tone totally in line with the Original Trilogy.



I would kill for such a thing, damnit!
 
If they get one out by 2025, it would be almost 10 years since U4. That's a good break to get people hungry for uncharted again. Just make sure drake is in it. Uncharted is Nathan drake. You can't have a game without him in it at all.

Worst mechanics, master class examples of third person shooting : Max Payne 3, RDR2 , Gears, The division.

ND has never had stellar gameplay mechanics.
Played them all minus The Division. Uncharted 4 Multiplayer is by far the best TPS i've ever played and it's not even close.

Animations/input latency: ✓
Seamless flow Roll/Aim/Shoot: ✓
Seamless fluid cover: ✓
Verticality: ✓
Recoil tailored around weapons: ✓
Ability to shoot while hanging on any surface: ✓
Ability to shoot while swinging: ✓
Blind fire efficiency: ✓
Hitboxes: ✓
Slow-Mo: ✓ (using In-Game Unlocks)

Game feel: 100/100.

You even mentioning some of these games immediately exposes you as a fraud.

thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
Why would they stop making uncharted games? The series is on a historic run. The ending in 4 was bittersweet and was a HUGE risk for Naughty Dog, there's a little bit of anxiety of where the series is going. Introducing Drake's daughter has been a huge success in some crowds and could change the trajectory of the franchise for years to come.
