Sony’s Michael Denny Shares that Naughty Dog and SCE Santa Monica Will Debut on PS4 "a Little Later"

By now everyone has pretty much noticed that the big hitters in Sony Computer Entertainment’s arsenal Naughty Dog and SCE Santa Monica Studio have been rather silent on the PlayStation 4 side of things, with no titles announced for Sony’s upcoming console yet. SCE Worldwide Studios Europe Vice President Michael Denny Explained what’s up with them.

Its a guarantee that they will release their games close to the end of 2014(sept - dec).

They still have Tokyo Game Show, and Video Game Awards 2013 to announce them.

Enemy1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

We could definitely see some trailers at the VGAs. Obviously Naughty Dog and Santa Monica aren't going to rush their games. Each of those games on PS3 that won GOTY took years to make.

vishmarx1930d ago

hope that little later is really little

mafiahajeri1930d ago

Sony said 20 exclusive game within the first year it's hard to believe tha lt Nd and sm aren't there.

NateCole1930d ago

Nov 2014 for ND and March 2015 for SM

AnotherProGamer1930d ago

Naughty Dog always reveal their new games at VGA like Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3, and The Last of Us

gaffyh1930d ago

There won't be a SM game next year, I think it will be Mar 2015. Sony'll probably announce the next Naughty Dog game at the VGAs for holiday 2014 though. NateCole is spot on imo, it matches the trends that the companies have been following.

PSjesus1930d ago

Also ND are 2 teams and one of them is working on
PS4's game since UC3.

abzdine1930d ago

guess we just have to wait a little longer!

God of War 4 and Uncharted 4

ZodTheRipper1930d ago

As we didn't know that already. I'm expecting late 2014 releases for both but I wouldn't mind waiting even longer IF they are working on completely new IP's.

slimeybrainboy1930d ago

The Uncharted ND have been working on a game since Early 2012, Amy Hennig isn't just eating cranberry's in Kuwait, there are quite a few key people that were prevelant in Uncharted 3 but missing for TLoU, they're working on something else.

SSM, Polyphony Digital, Quantic Dream is what this guy is more talking about with games coming out this year.

ND have a second team
GG have a second team
MM have an entire studio that can't all be thinking about a Vita game
Sony Bend are still a mystery and confirmed to be working on a PS4 game
San Diego
The Last Guardian

Any mixture of these have possible 2014 release dates, obviously most of them will likely be 2015.

NovusTerminus1929d ago

InFamous Second Son has been in the making for 2 years. Naughty Dog has prolly been at work since U3 came out, so overall it is very likely that their next game will be out next year. Falls in line with their normal turn time in truth.

SSM will be unveiling their game soon... But I think it will take longer to come out.

Rimeskeem1929d ago

i allow them for any amount of time as long as they make it worth it

MM have been quite since LBP2

ND original team has been working on something for ps4 since UC3

SSM team has been quite since GOW3

All 3 are due and most likely in 2014, also wouldn't be surprised if we see all3 announced at VGA

Also Sony most likely will give gameinformer one reveal game too

Either way should see some announcements

TGS will be all about Japanese

I want Yakuza news on ps4/Vita

I want news on Yakuza 5 and Yakuza HD collection for west

Shenmue HD collection

BInary domain but this won't happen, even though the first is such a great game

Demon soul 2 anyone?

News on last guardian

Angeljuice1929d ago

I'm most excited to see what Media Molecule are cooking (you know the game that stopped Shuhei's brain from working).

I think it's a pretty good bet that it won't be a standard game genre (MM are too creative for that). Something amazing with a touch of British eccentricity is what I'm expecting.

Deadpoolio1929d ago

There already was a Demon Soul 2 it was called Dark Souls

tigertron1930d ago

Savage Starlight please.

Enemy1930d ago


alessandro101930d ago

Man i will die if they announce this will be the next naughty dog game. I cannot imagine what this guys will be able to do with something like this.

I my wet dream it will be something like Cobra (Japanese Manga)

i will be just to much

RedDevils1929d ago

If you die, then you won't get a chance to play it LOL

Sevir1930d ago

Can Someone Please fill me in on Savage Starlight. And why do people keep bringing that name up when Naughtydog is mentioned?

tigertron1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

In The Last of US you'll find comics called Savage Starlight that Ellie likes to read.

The Last of Us itself started life as a mere newspaper article in a pub in Uncharted 3, also Savage Starlight looks as though it could be a great sci-fi series.


Sevir1930d ago

Oh wow Tigertron, I can't believe I glossed over that in the Last of Us...

I know how ND teases new projects in their games it just seemed too elaborate and in your face to be a tease, the last of us tease in Uncharted 3 was subtle, and only happened in the very beginning of the game, so it was easy to over look. It would be cool if ND did do Savage starlight.

kenshiro1001930d ago

They make a Sci-fi game, count me in.

FlunkinMonkey1929d ago (Edited 1929d ago )

O man alive a Sci-fi from Naughty Dog would be the ultimate for me... While not wanting to copy Mass Effect at all(which I loved), the game lacked finesse and needed the polish that Naughty Dog can bring.

Naughty Dog (Story telling, gameplay, voice acting, polish) + Next-Gen (PS4) = WIN.

I would love the soundtrack to be composed by James Homer (Aliens), something deep and orchestral reminiscent of classic darker 80's/90's sci-fi.

I'm in.

Looks like I'll be getting a ps4 a little later.... oh well. I wonder if they can rise above everyone else.

mac_sparrow1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

Well, even though you were trying to be subtle by using rise and not ryse, 15 people at present (and Rysing) have detected your agenda.

Personally I thought you covered immature and irrelevant comment it up quite well.

Wait a second...

1930d ago
N4g_null1930d ago

Wow rise suck lol oh man you ps4 fanboys... im a god of war man and im hoping ndog can make a better game next time to beat out cod for good because killzone is not doing it.

Basically by rise I mean... any one can pull off tlou on next gen, the wiiu included now since it has new cry engine support... so hopefully they can find away to rise above what is currently being produced on the zbrush forums... sorry to get you fanboy all riled up.... yet I dont see a reason to get an xone other than to make money off making small games for it.

Yet im really not liking the ps community that much ethier so I may not even get one. You guys are way too defensive and you praise pr more than games it seems. Good luck with that.

mac_sparrow1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

Something to beat CoD? Do you mean quality? Done.

Or do you mean sales, which are no yard stick when it comes to enjoyment, quality and would only be bragged about by production companies and people desperate to justify their choice or preference.

If you truly wanted naughty dog to be better than CoD, you'd know it happened with Crash Bandicoot.

Saying anyone can pull off the last of us, even the wiiu, misses the point entirely. It was art direction, story direction, gameplay and emotion that made that a masterpiece; not how many triangles were shifted.

N4g_null1930d ago

Sony needs cash instead of fanboy pats on the back... if Nintendo can beat cod then why cant sony? Those games you hate provides funds for games I do like. Also when was the last time crash sold cod numbers or even mario numbers?

any one can pull off that kind of art now, that is my point. There have also been better stories in gaming. My eye is on these two devs...
Just go to any professional site. You will understand as this gen goes on. They are belowe the current bar of what is possible on the ps4, which was mostly part of their appeal. Hopefully that does not fad as everyone catches up with them art wise.

You obviously dont want to talk about this so ill leave you too your fanboy party! Good day,

mac_sparrow1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

saying I don't want to talk about it is an interesting way to sum up that your comment is largely the same as the previous one and therefore largely redundant

"any one can pull off that kind of art now, that is my point."

I'm going to give everyone in the world 2 pieces of paper, 2 sets of colouring pencils and the exact same paint.

Everyone in the world is going to produce work of the same standard are they? Oh and I was talking about the first Crash, not the ones since ND moved on from the IP, but of course you knew that but it's easier to twist things to suit your agenda than address them as legitimate points needing rebuttal.

N4g_null1930d ago

Your point doesn't need rebuttle because they are pointless... you where jumping to conclussions and you where wrong lol. Feel free to to believe what you want though, it has not consequence. crash has been abandoned for a long time. You obviously dont know what zbrush is or what art is being produced, your comment is an empty argument since I was talking about my own opinion that you misinterpreted, there is nothing to prove so you can continue arguing with your self if you like.

mac_sparrow1930d ago

Oh, shame I don't know what zbrush is, I guess I better uninstall it then. I only dabble, my work isn't great, which ironically serves to illustrate my point.

Anyway, bubbles gone. Goodnight.

moparful991929d ago

You want sales scissor? Gran turismo 5 alone on ps3 sold more than any of the COD's

N4g_null1929d ago

i dont expect you guys to agree, yet im waiting to see what these two studios do. i stopped playing gt when i got access to real cars like that... so that wont sell me ethier. i would like to see sony have more games selling, 1st party from these studios, sell like nintendo franchises. i would also like to see them makes some games that an old schooler like my self would like to play. stories are great but gameplay is king.

HarryMasonHerpderp1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

The best thing is though you just know it will be worth the wait when they show us what they're working on.

Kuse1930d ago

Confirmation that Naughty Dog won't be debuting till at a much later date or any of their other major publishers...That gives me the green light to get the Xbox One early then PS4 down the road some.

Hey admit it...Xbox One has a better launch line up. I mean unless you are a shooter junkie that is.

And Knack? Are you serious? Launch game? chamon...

Abriael1930d ago

How did you transform "a little later" to "much later"?

Kuse1930d ago

Do the math, The Last of Us was just released. You think they have a brand new game ready to launch next year? You gotta be realistic in terms of development.

I love Naughty Dog but the fact that they haven't even given us a teaser is leaving something to be desired. I mean at least give us a bone...something...anything...

MariaHelFutura1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

Naughty Dog has 2 teams....

jon12341930d ago

ND is also still working on DLC for TLOU

bjmartynhak1930d ago

The guys from Uncharted 3 that haven't gone to The Last of Us are probably working on a new Uncharted.

Caffo011930d ago

You should do the math...Naughty Dog has 2 teams..

fpshooter21930d ago


"admit it...Xbox One has a better launch line up"

This is what makes you look like a fanboy. Trying to pass your opinion off as fact. Your opinion is worth no more than mine and i feel like Sony has a better lineup. Everyone here knows you where getting the xbox one anyway.

I cant understand how you guys go around stating things like facts when they are totally subjective.

Kakashi Hatake1930d ago

Yeah you Xbox fans are just running with what MS said. X1s "amazing line up has nothing worth playing besides DR3. Forza is just more holding down the trigger button while twiddling the analogs. A racer will never be a reason to buy a console since the experience is similar across the board. What does that leave X1 with? I'm not saying PS4 is any better, but you X1 fans are hilarious trying to make it seem like it's fact that X1 has better titles.

Kuse1930d ago

I'm not interested in Forza at all, and by the way I like both consoles. That doesn't make me a fanboy. It makes me a gamer, which is something many of you have seem to forgotten. We are all gamers and that's why we are here No?

Anyways I am very interested in Dead Rising 3 and Ryse Son of Rome both in which look fairly appealing visually and story wise. That and if you look into the future you have Sunset Overdrive, new Halo game, Quantum Break...Project Spark...all in which look to be really promising.

yeah sure buddy act like you can buy every game on launch..i rather have Sony split their first party games since ill have to many games to play this year..

mac_sparrow1930d ago

Indeed, I looked at my shopto preorders until years end and it's over £800; and £100+ of that is ps3 stuff, so I for one am glad that the quality titles will constantly trickle in rather than all at once like some kind of 'sorry for forgetting you for 3 years but we still value you' salvo.

grassyknoll1930d ago

Naughty Dog has 2 teams now...

Majin-vegeta1930d ago

Reply to your bottom comment.

Do the math, The Last of Us was just released. You think they have a brand new game ready to launch next year? You gotta be realistic in terms of development.

ND has been split into 2 teams the uncharted team and the TLOU team.So yes technically we could see their new game at the VGA'S.

DA_SHREDDER1929d ago

People don't even realize that ND is so good that they expect more out of them. Even MS fanboys. lol, not that anyone here is a fanboy :)

svoulis1930d ago

Lets "pretend" you're right about that. You are basically saying " Xbox One has a better launch line up but what after after that? Halo? Titanfall? That's about it. If you ask me those are games for shooter junkies, are they not?

The only 2 games that interest me on Xbox One are Dead Rising 3 and Ryse. If sales don't meet Capcoms expectations for Dead Rising 3, you can guarantee they will announce it for another system. Its how the industry works. Judging by preorder charts as of right now its not looking that great..especially for an exclusive. So I do not see the reason to buy a 500 dollar console for 2 games and halo later in the consoles life. Other then that I can at least assure myself that Sony has so many IPs my console will be future proof. I will buy an Xbox One when it cost 399 and doesn't come with a camera I will leave in the box.

Your logic is invalid and makes your argument/point moot. Carry on fanboy :D

wishingW3L1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

well, what can I say? I replayed the same thing as the dudes above.

-Foxtrot1930d ago

What the hell is wrong with Knack

It looks like a solid platform game. No wonder games are always shooters people like you keep playing them down before they are out

Funnymonkey0131930d ago

Hope u realize that yeah finally shitbox has games 4 it where Sony keeps making top games on ps3 and still if not r 100% better then any X1 game to come out just buy seeing the demo of them. Plus dont get all high with FPS I'm guessing u will get BF4 COD and others. And this a fact but launch titles aren't as important as is the future ahead of the system cause get ready 4 loads of amazing games only 4 ps4 by its release and 2014 where MS will just milk it's games and buying time DLC.

GribbleGrunger1930d ago (Edited 1930d ago )

So the only reason you would buy a PS4 is because of a Naughty Dog game ... Don't bother mate, Sony don't want you.

christrules00411930d ago

Meanwhile the Titanfall game has "all the hype" according to some writers but that doesn't have a release date and is almost expect for summer next year.

As for Knack I didn't like it at first but the gameplay mechanics seem fun. Destroy stuff and get larger. Destroy crystals and once you fill up on crystals you can do super power moves. They also have stuff like when your the wooden Knack you can catch on fire and it'll drain your health.

In the US though Killzone: Shadowfall has more pre orders then Dead Rising 3, Forza 5 and Ryse: Son of Rome all together. Releasing 2 AAA games plus Drive Club with the PS+ edition really lets them focus on selling more of those 2 games.

The sales for Microsoft's AAA launch exclusives are literally eating each others sales. That isn't good for Microsoft but Sony spreads them out so people can spend money, make money and then spend more money. It's a good strategy from the business standpoint.
