Naughty Dog will not be developing any more Uncharted games, with the studio’s co-president Neil Druckmann announcing that the studio is “done” with the long-running franchise. In an interview with Buzzfeed, Druckmann discussed what lay ahead for some of the studio’s biggest franchises, including the potential for The Last Of Us Part III.
Eventually, attention turned to the Uncharted series, which started in 2007. “For us, Uncharted was insanely successful,” Druckmann said. The series has further expanded into the cinemas with last year’s adaptation of Uncharted, starring Tom Holland. Druckmann described Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which served as Nathan Drake’s final adventure “one of our best-selling games — and we’re able to put our final brushstroke on that story and say that we’re done. We’re moving on.”
It’d be difficult to put a more definitive, final point on it than this. Next up on Naughty Dog’s schedule would be the upcoming The Last Of Us multiplayer game, which Druckmann described during the Summer Games Fest in 2021 as “big as any of our single-player games.”
As the doors close on one franchise, the HBO adaptation of Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us continues to gain high viewership numbers, and there was even a subtle easter egg to an Uncharted character in Episode 2. Read the full FlickLuster review here to find out more.
