Last week, Sony admitted it'd be "difficult" to consider another studio for the award-winning Uncharted franchise.
And while I'm pretty sure I would be leery about any new series entry that wasn't made by Naughty Dog, it got me thinking: Which studio might I trust with this IP?
I thought about Sucker Punch, the team responsible for one of my favorite PlayStation franchises ( inFamous ). But you know, I'm just not sure that's the right fit; there really is a world of difference between an open-world action game and a linear, narrative-driven action/adventure like Uncharted . Then I thought about Sony Santa Monica, the studio that delivered so many unbelievable God of War installments. That might not be a bad idea, actually. These guys are not only top-tier developers but I think they have the chops to retain a lot of what makes Uncharted so special.
My other choice might actually be Ready at Dawn, because The Order: 1886 is akin to the type of game they'd have to make for a new Uncharted quest. Of course, it probably wouldn't be farmed out to a third-party independent studio but if that was an option, who would you like to see working on Uncharted ?
