Naughty Dog has marked the fifth anniversary of the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with a series of player stats. Naughty Dog captioned a post on their official Twitter account with a small statement to players, thanking those “who joined us and Nathan Drake on this wild ride.”
In the post, the team shows off some stats about a number of in-game moments, including playing with the lemur located in a marketplace during Chapter 11 of the campaign (Hidden In Plain Sight). To claim a trophy, players are required to purchase an apple from a woman in the market and feed it to the lemur.
Some have even compared this sequence to the iconic giraffe moment from the end of The Last Of Us. Mental note to self: play this game again and feed the lemur. So, on the subject of the lemur, Naughty Dog revealed in their post that 9.8 million players interacted with the lemur in the market.

Below is the full rundown of Naughty Dog’s stats in a font kinder to the eyes. For example, Uncharted 4’s multiplayer mode boasted 13.3 million online players, while 9.5 million players used an accessibility option while playing.
During Chapter 12 (At Sea), a magnificently beautiful sequence off the coast of Madagascar, 7.5 million players played Marco Polo (again), while 2 million players climbed to the summit of the Clocktower and took a picture of Sully respectively.
Then there are the 12 million players (sadly I’m not one of them) who successfully hit all the targets in the attic with the toy gun.
Elsewhere, the Uncharted film was recently delayed by a week. The adaptation of Naughty Dog’s iconic video game series was slated for cinematic release on February 11, 2022, but will now make its debut on February 18.
The film’s earliest scheduled release in cinemas was back in 2016; it was later slated for release on March 5, 2021, followed by release dates of July 16 and Oct. 8.
