Last year’s “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” signalled the end of the gaming adventures of Nathan Drake in the gaming world. In a surprise reveal though, Naughty Dog showed they weren’t completely done with the franchise though with the unveiling of the spinoff title “Uncharted: The Lost Legacy”
Now, as part of the cover story for the latest issue of Game Informer, Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells insists that this is the final outing for the franchise:
“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.”
“Uncharted: The Lost Legacy” is set to feature Chloe Frazer from “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves” teaming with Nadine Ross from “Uncharted 4: A Thief”s End” in order to recover a fabled ancient Indian artifact and keep it out of the hands of a ruthless war profiteer.
Together, they’ll venture deep into the mountains of India in search of the legendary artifact and must learn to work together to unearth its mystery.
The standalone title will be available on store shelves and for digital download, while those who already purchased the “Uncharted 4” Digital Deluxe Edition or the Explorer’s Pack, will get the game free as a download at launch.
