The developer behind Uncharted, Naughty Dog have yet to rule out a new Uncharted game after The Lost Legacy, though hasn’t committed to anything beyond The Last of Us Part 2 at this point.
Speaking with The Daily Star, Naughty Dog’s Shawn Escayg said the California-based studio is currently in the process of exploring new ideas for future projects, they wouldn’t be specific on what the next project could be.
Yes, it’s pretty exciting..We don’t know what the future holds, but you’re right, it could be something new. It could be another Uncharted, who knows. Naughty Dog is not afraid of exploring more stuff.”
“The entire studio is like that, everyone wants to try something new. There are so many new ideas, it’s the culture at Naughty Dog, we love ideas. The studio right now is just teeming with new content and new ideas building up new worlds, new genres. it’s a constant melting pot of new ideas.”
Naughty Dog recently wrapped production on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which is due out exclusively for PlayStation 4 on August 22, 2017. A release date for The Last of Us 2 remains up in the air, although the project is still very much in the early stages of development.
Previously, Naughty Dog had seemingly cut ties with the series, although suggested a new studio could work on a potential Uncharted 5 down the line. So it’s still possible for a new game in the series it would just won’t be for a while until we see it.
