Sony Bend Was, At One Level, Engaged on a New Uncharted
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 keeping with a report on Bloomberg, it was truly remaking 2013’s PlayStation 3 mega-hit The Final of Us.
Sony Bend, as an alternative, was engaged on a brand new Uncharted for a short while. In response to journalist Jason Schreier, as soon as plans for Days Gone 2 have been crushed, the developer was divided into two groups: one was assigned to The Final of Us’ multiplayer recreation which was formally acknowledged by Naughty Canine over a yr in the past, the opposite began work on a brand new Uncharted.
Clarifying his article on Twitter, Schreier defined that the challenge primarily existed “on paper”, and after the studio expressed issues that it might ultimately be absorbed by Naughty Canine – who was overseeing the brand new Uncharted recreation – it was granted the liberty to make one thing new. This, in keeping with the journalist, occurred as lately as final month.
Eurogamer.internet provides – citing “one individual acquainted with plans” – that Sony Bend’s Uncharted was supposed 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 hazy. It sounds, to us, like there isn’t a brand new recreation presently in improvement – 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.
