So what’s Naughty Dog working on next, and on which platforms? The PlayStation 3, the PSP? The Dog’s explain that they still see plenty of mileage in the Uncharted universe and would love to bring fans more of the series and its characters.
In our exclusive interview with Naughty Dog, I asked them whether we’ll find out more about Nathan Drake’s family and back story. The studio’s community strategist (awesome job) Arne Meyer replied:
“The Uncharted universe is a very deep universe populated by characters with rich backgrounds – and present and futures stories. We’re definitely looking at ways to reveal more about our game universe and the characters that live within it – I think our fans are looking for more and we’d love to provide that to them.”
So they’d love to bring us more Uncharted – but that doesn’t necessarily mean Uncharted 3 is on the way. So I asked them whether they felt pressured into making a sequel to the well received Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Meyer responded:
“We’ve always felt that the Uncharted universe has strong potential to be a long-term franchise, even living outside of video game releases. The speculation and news over the past year regarding an Uncharted feature film is an example of that.”
So could Uncharted make its way to the PlayStation Network, or even the PSP?
“We would love to expand the Uncharted franchise to expose as many people as possible to the compelling stories we have to tell within that universe,” Meyer told PSUni. “However, we haven’t made any plans at the moment regarding other platforms.”
So another PS3 Uncharted game is a dead cert, right? Keep your eye out for our Naughty Dog interview, landing in the coming days.
