Money is a funny commodity, apparently you need a lot of it if you plan on doing everything you’d like to do. That’s the current problem hitting the Naughty Dog team and preventing them from diving head first into all of the projects they’d like to.
While many of us are excited for them to start working on Uncharted 3, there are also those of us who’d like a new IP or to see the Jak & Daxter series brought to the PlayStation 3. Naughty Dog feels the exact same way, but they just don’t have the resources to dive into all of those projects at the current time.
In a recent interview with Joystiq.com, Evan Wells discusses how the team would love to bring J&D to PS3, however the limited resources is preventing them from doing such.
Maybe we could go to Jak and Daxter as the next project. Maybe we stick with Uncharted [laughs]. Maybe we come up with a new IP. It’s tricky to be able to tackle all of those at once. Right?
We don’t have the resources. So, we’re gonna have to choose our battles. I’m not sure whether Jak and Daxter will win that battle. Like you were saying, though, with trying to find a partner to work with us on the PSP version of Uncharted, I think it would be a shame if there weren’t a Jak and Daxter for the PS3 generation. So, if we can’t find a partner for one of those, then maybe we’re going to have to find a budget ourselves. [laughs]
