Nobody quite expected the Uncharted series would become one of the greatest and most loved series in video gaming, but it has. And that is probably why it’s a bitter pill to swallow when Naughty Dog, the people behind the Uncharted series, says that they’re pretty much done with it.
In an interview with Gameinformer Naughty Dog co-president, Evan Wells said that although they are very excited about The Lost Legacy and Chloe’s story, they have no further plans for the Uncharted series:
[quote] I would say that Naughty Dog doing an Uncharted after this is unlikely. I would never say never, but we’ve got The Last of Us Part II on our plates and there’s so much other stuff that [we want to explore]. It’d be hard. If we magically had that two-team, three-team studio, sure – it’d be great to keep doing it. We really love the franchise, but the studio has limited resources and lots of other ideas. I’d say the likelihood is low. [/quote]
It’s a brave move putting a series to rest, especially one that’s seen such a huge success for both Naughty Dog and Sony. Don’t be surprised if an Uncharted game made by another Sony first party studio does pop up in the future, but even if that happens, we all know it just won’t be the same.
