We’ve been anticipating the announcement of a brand new Uncharted for fairly a while. Many had assumed that Sony’s secret San Diego studio – which was by no means formally introduced – was engaged on a continuation of the buccaneering Naughty Canine sequence; in line with a report on Bloomberg, it was actually remaking 2013’s PlayStation three mega-hit The Last of Us.
Sony Bend, as an alternative, was engaged on a brand new Uncharted for a short time. In keeping with journalist Jason Schreier, once plans for Days Gone 2 were crushed, the developer was divided into two groups: one was assigned to The Last of Us’ multiplayer game which was formally acknowledged by Naughty Canine over a 12 months in the past, the opposite began work on a brand new Uncharted.
Clarifying his article on Twitter, Schreier defined that the venture primarily existed “on paper”, and after the studio expressed issues that it may ultimately be absorbed by Naughty Canine – who was overseeing the brand new Uncharted sport – it was granted the liberty to make one thing new. This, in line with the journalist, occurred as just lately as final month.
Eurogamer.net provides – citing “one particular person conversant in plans” – that Sony Bend’s Uncharted was meant to be a “reboot for the franchise, with one concept being for a prequel”. It was apparently going to be “a brand new chapter within the sequence separated considerably from Naughty Canine’s earlier video games”.
The way forward for Uncharted, then, stays a bit of hazy. It sounds, to us, like there isn’t a brand new sport at the moment in growth – and if there nonetheless is, it’s within the very early levels. It’d be unusual if Sony have been to remake The Final of Us as a way to align it with the tv present, however not have something in retailer for the upcoming Uncharted film. However that, apparently, is the place we’re at.
