Desires for new licenses, yes, but this does not mean that the Dogs will obviously give up another Uncharted game, The Last of Us 3 or Jak and Daxter 4.
Ideas, there seems to be a bundle running through the heads of Naughty Dog, including giving up on giving up the license that really blew them up: Uncharted.
While a ambitious stand alone multiplayer game, who wants to be cinematographic and as qualitative as the studio’s solo titles, Evan Wells – who shares the presidency of Naughty Dog with Neil Druckmann, was questioned on what developers aspire to for the future.
IP News? Back to Uncharted or The Last of Us?
I believe the easy answer is: the two. I think that’there is enthusiasm to develop new franchises, most there is still a lot of love for Uncharted and The Last of Us, and I think that in the future you will see other projects around his series from us.
Uncharted 5 on PS5 is therefore a track, even if previously, the teams had preferred to stop at Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, after having changed his mind twice.
What if it was already in preparation? A former Bend Studio revealed that following the rejection of Days Gone 2, a part had been assigned on an Uncharted project, before negotiating a comeback on a new “promising” IP.
Remember, if necessary, that the outline of the story of a The Last of Us 3 has been written and that’a Jak and Daxter 4 is also not out of reach.
Until then, it will remain the film Uncharted with Tom Holland and the HBO TLOU series.
