Naughty Dog’s Bruce Straley Shares Sketches for Jak II and Bone Game he Wanted to Make

Today The Last of Us and Uncharted II Game Director Bruce Straley shared a couple of very old but very interesting sketches about Jak II and a Bone game he wanted to make. (Bruce Straley, PS2)

super cool, and perhaps they might be hinting an announcement about J & D in the near future? Only time will tell.

I doubt they'd release anything if they actually had some sort of time table for this franchise.

Though it is very unlikely, if you remember in an interview about the last of us, naughty dog shared that in the concept art, it was going to be a jak game (or like a jak game I don't remember exactly) so it shows that still have interest in the game, and though it's a huge stretch, (like fitting an elephant in spandex stretch) it's a possibility

They have previously tossed around ideas about another Jak game, and have said it is not going to happen. They feel like they have out grown Jak, and that going back to it, they would be very confined and unable to bring the game up to date without making massive changes.

They have said they are not opposed to another studio picking it up though, as long as it is a studio they trust.

Very cool sketches and renders. I would be interested if he made this game on the Bones character.

To be honest I preferred Jak I over 2 and 3. And that picture just remind me of it, if only they can go back to the origin of Jak&Daxter, nature rooted. Forget about the gta and sci-fi elements. That's what I disliked about the 2, Jak himself looked so different too.

Anyhow, whatever ND is cooking up, it's gotta be good.

Jak 1 was very repetitive. Find X batteries to go to the next area. The change to sandbox was very good.

Jak 1 was too repetitive. It was great in the golden age of platformers, but say what you want about 2&3 but they offered more gameplay depth.

Jak I got old quick with the Orb grind, Jak II's weapon arsenal was just fantastic. Gravity gun and cheat codes then you're all set.

Jak was a Classic but looking back I'm pretty sure I had the most fun/enjoyment out of 3.

I actually totally agree with you.

The problem with Jak II and III is level design. The levels just aren't as fun to navigate, and have a lot more frustrating issues. Jak I was a pure platformer, and a brilliant open-world one at that. Traversing every environment was amazing and fun.

Jak II and III lost that so much.

A Naughty Dog developed Bone game would be pretty sweet.

I, the Doritos Pope declare that Naughty Dog be deemed holy to our faithful adherents of the Church of Doritos! They have shown they are worty to partake of our blessed 7 sacraments of the Doradito and make us all warm and fuzzy inside.
So! My children!, let it be known that I bless Naughty Dog with my blessed Dew and they are deserving in my eyes! So sayeth the infallable Doritos Pope! So shall it be !
Thank the great Doradito in the sky for the talent at Naughty Dog! sayeth the Doritos Pope, vicar of the great Doradito is the sky!

But sire, doth Naughty Dog not already have a previous allegiance to the path of the Subway?

Call it Xbone, just to make people angry.

I never did finish that Bone series. I'm going to have to find the rest of the volumes and get on that some time.

Dear Lord a Bone game from ND would have been godlike, love those comics
