Uncharted is a 'pillar franchise,' nothing to say about its future just yet

Wondering why we didn’t see Nathan Drake make an appearance at E3? (Aside from Playstation All Stars) According to Sony’s Scott Rohde, Uncharted is moving aside to make way for The Last Of Us.

The story is too old to be commented.

Want to know the real reason? Naughty Dog's other team is working on Uncharted 4 for the PS4

DigitalRaptor2295d ago (Edited 2295d ago )

Either Uncharted 4, or saving it for later and creating a new IP. I can imagine that they've been in transition to PS4 hardware development since Uncharted 3 launched, and are creating their launch title for 2014. That would be awesome!

user54670072294d ago

I think they'll use Uncharted 4 as a launch game to see what the PS4 can do, then we'll see more of the Last of Us if it's sequel material (who knows could be a one off game), maybe Jak 4 or a new IP and then once those are out of the way and NaughtyDog knows what the PS4 can do they'll make Uncharted 5.

Just my thoughts anyway

DigitalRaptor2294d ago

Yeah, you could be right. Uncharted 4 & PS4, I can see the marketing for that easily. I have a feeling that The Last of Us will be a one-off, self-contained experience like Quantic Dream's games. I wouldn't want to see it turn into a series, unless there was an appropriate story behind it.

A Jak 4 would be great, but I doubt they'd do it. Maybe another studio would do it like with Sly 4.

metsgaming2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

i really really hope that they are working on Uncharted 4 for the PS4. I think they have at least 1 more left in them. I want to see what they can do with an uncharted with new hardware then they can make another new IP.

MAJ0R2294d ago

I kind of hope Uncharted 4 is for the PS4, but Naughty Dog really needs to turn things up with it.

They can't just have the cliche and action moments like they did in Uncharted 2 and expect it to be successful, because by that time I'm sure there will be many games that have copied Uncharted 2 on the market. They need to do something new, and also kill off all or some of the characters to finish the series off and prevent milking.

It's a shame because Uncharted is Playstations only really great multiplayer game.

Guess I can keep playing 3 till 4 comes out though. I'm certain it will... but probably on PS4 or something.

cpayne932294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Actually I perfer Killzone 2 and 3 to uncharted... And warhawk, and resistance 1-2. But other than those and bad company 2, I never have really gotten into multiplayer games.

I'm about to start on uncharted 2s multiplayer though so who knows. I hear its better than 3.

Edit: Just to clarify, I perfer the multiplayer od those games to uncharted's multiplayer, not the whole games themselves.

-Alpha2294d ago

Oh yes, Uncharted 2s MP is much better for various reasons, the big one being balance is much better. But, you're not going to enjoy UC2 in its true glory: Much harder to find matches outside of DM, and usually that isn't very full, and the players are really great, so it will be a tough grind. Additionally, they lowered the health and killed the greatness of the game, which UC3 got right. If anything, play a 5 on 5 private match with customized health

ChronoJoe2294d ago

Ya I love R2 but that's pretty much dead now, R3 is sort of meh, Killzone 2 is amazing but it's difficult to find people within my usual online friends to play that one nowadays. Killzone 3 is alright though.

Still, Uncharted is by far the most popular online, exclusive MP PS3 game. Exclusive is what I meant by 'playstations' in my original comment by the way.

Uncharted 2 and 3s multiplayers were okay but most people didn't like Uncharted 2 after the patch that made it uh, casual. Dropping the bullet damage really ruined the game and caused a huge outcry from fans, a good portion of which left the games MP entirely.

UC2 prepatch > UC3 but UC3 > UC2 1.04 and above. That's usually the consensual opinion of the UC community too.

"It's a shame because Uncharted is Playstations only really great multi-player game".

To you, perhaps. To many others, that couldn't be more inaccurate.

ChronoJoe2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Well as far as exclusives go, it's the only one with a large, strong online community.

Well, that and LittleBigPlanet.

Zha1tan2294d ago

Guess you havent heard of starhawk.

TheBigShamona2294d ago

I was a HUGE MAG fan back In the day, I don't play much often anymore tho. I would have liked to have seen a spiritual successor to it but It's a shame what happened to Zipper. I bought all their recent games New and dlc but i guess there weren't enough other supporters. Hell MAG was my original reason to buy the Move.

ChronoJoe2294d ago

Have Starhawk. Don't really play it. It's pretty unbalanced. Got a 7:1 KDR or something on it.

They patched it to fix some of the balance issues but the learning curve still makes it incredibly easy for those willing to get their head around the mechanics.

TheFinalEpisode2294d ago

You should really play Starhawk then.
Also Resistance 2, any killzone, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Gran Turismon 5 all have great MP check them out if you can.

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME2294d ago

You just offended alot of people, including myself.

not really, just kindof, what multiplayer game do you like (no i'm not trying to prove you wrong) that isn't uncharted?

Hicken2294d ago

People who don't know what they're talking about shouldn't talk.

cpayne mentioned five great PS3-only multiplayer games. Zha1tan mentioned one, and TheFinalEpisode brought up two more.

Eight, and not one of them Uncharted.

DlocDaBudSmoka2294d ago

heres one more to make 9. Warhawk. im not sure if anyone still plays but it is a great mp game.

StrawberryDiesel4202294d ago

Demon's Souls has the best mp on any console this gen, it was brilliant and actually made the sp better, which no other game this gen has really done.

ChronoJoe2294d ago

I should have probably been more specific with my comment. Whilst the PS3 has lots of solid MP games I believe it takes a solid online community to make a really great one.

Uncharted 3 is the only massively popular one available right now. Uncharted, GT5 and LittleBigPlanet anyway (although at the time I was just talking about shooters

I didn't mean to say that games like KZ2, 3, R2, R3, Starhawk, Warhawk weren't good games. Just not largely popular anymore for the most part.

CGI-Quality2294d ago (Edited 2294d ago )

Still think you're short changing their games, and by quite a ways.

Uncharted was at e3! didn't you see tomb raider and starwars 1313.

hold on, dont think i'm bashing on those games, both of those were some of my favorites at e3 this year, people automatically think borrowing from games is bad, and if it's done right it isn't, modnation made a kart racer, but made some really cool new gameplay aspects that made it so that it wasn't another copy, as long as both games can do that then they're fine

tomb raider looks like it's doing just that, and we haven't seen much of starwars 1313 but i'm excited to see more

smashcrashbash2294d ago

I am loving the sound of this game. I just read a preview of it and the person said Joel got jumped from behind and held in a choke hold and the guy's friends shot at Joel through the windows making sure not to shoot the guy holding him. The scavengers are actually concerned about each others welfare.Ellie was so smart that she didn't even jump into help him because she knew she would be shot at. ND said she has her own survival instinct.

Another scene they mentioned was when a guy saw that Joel had a revolver and ran shouting warning to his partners. And when Joel found him he was waiting for him with a Molotov but Joel shot it out of his hand. So the guy ran at him screaming in desperate attack and got two shots in the chest. And none of this was scripted. This AI is awesome.

Sevir2294d ago

considering ND just released Uncharted 3 November Last year and Sony Bend just shipped Uncharted:GA in feb this year! Honestly let ND's other team get to working on a new ip for the PS4, Uncharted i feel is begining to suffer franchise fatigue, many people thought U3 was more of the same and compare it to U2 (which I think is silly) but its clear that For Drake to have a greater impact since his last 2 home console games ND needs to take some time and leave Drake on an island to relax with Sully Chloe and Elena! The Franchise is rich and FULL of greater potential. Let the franchise rest a little. The Amy Henning needs to pen a newer more impactful story and Ip then, we can have the team that did Uncharted 2 and The Last of Us take on Uncharted 4 for the next gen Playstation and be a year 2 title much the way Uncharted came out in the PS3's second Year!
