Is Uncharted a trilogy? Should Naughty Dog just be happy and content with three of the most popular and critically acclaimed games of all time?
Of course not. In fact, the developers never intended for Drake's adventures to wrap up after only three installments, which is fantastic news for the millions of fans out there.
During a recent VentureBeat interview , Naughty Dog game director Justin Richmond said they never settled on an exact number of entries. If gamers want more, they'll make more. Simple. Said Richmond:
"We have always said that if we think that we can make something new and interesting, if the fans still want them, then we can make another one. But we never said how many of these things there will be. There are plenty more stories in the universe. It is just a question of what's the company interested in doing next. We really don't know at this moment."
Well, you can bet Sony will be asking for a new Uncharted , but do you think Naughty Dog should try something new? Spread their wings a little? They've conquered the interactive entertainment world in terms of overall quality; wouldn't it be nice to see a brand new IP from such a talented group? Variety is the spice of life, yes?
…of course, we're still gonna want that fourth Uncharted at some point, guys. Richmond added that the team will "make a decision" about their next project "maybe this month."
