A New Uncharted Game Is In The Works, Says New Report

A New Uncharted Game Is In The Works, Says New Report

Though we might not be seeing Nathan Drake again.

Though Nathan Drake's story might have finished up with Uncharted: A Thief's End, it seems that the Uncharted series will continue. A new report from Bloomberg suggests that there is another Uncharted title in the works somewhere as a replacement for a Days Gone sequel.

The new story from Bloomberg reports on the internal game development at Sony at the moment, and how the Japanese company is betting on games it knows will do well rather than looking for riskier projects. For example, rather than making a second Days Gone game, Sony has opted to fund yet another Uncharted title. This report says that that decision was made back in 2019 it seems, which is three years after A Thief's End was released.

Days Gone, although pretty well-liked, might be one of the less successful PlayStation exclusives we can name for PlayStation 4. Where Bloodborne, the Uncharted games, Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima all succeeded in winning the hearts of plays, Days Gone isn't remembered as fondly, and so it doesn't currently look like Sony will be spending time and money expanding that series.

Instead, a better bet is to return to a franchise that is getting a film, and perhaps the game will have a new lead. Uncharted: A Thief's End was supposed to be Nathan Drake's final journey, as he finally hangs up his gun holster and settles into a comfortable life with his family. Following A Thief's End, we did have The Lost Legacy which was a follow-up, stand-alone expansion using 4's engine. This follows Nadine Ross and Chloe Frazer on their own adventure separate from Drake's. It has the same humour and gameplay as a normal Uncharted title, but with a new cast - another new Uncharted game is likely to leave Drake behind and move on with other cast members instead. Perhaps a young Sully would be a cool idea, or potentially another new, young cocky individual that could have a few games to develop as Nathan did.

Well, who knows for now. All we know is that Sony has okayed a project centering on the world of Uncharted, but it's also given the okay to a full The Last of Us remake too.
