Can Sony really afford to allow Naughty Dog to kill off Nathan Drake? Probably not, but why?
I don't think I'd be happy with 10 Uncharted games, some things do have to come to an end, maybe Uncharted 5 should be the last game I still hope ND make a Scifi game
The last quote made by ND stated Uncharted 4 will be the last. "The team at Naughty Dog will be heads down working through 2015 making sure that Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure it deserves." "making sure that Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure it deserves." "Nathan Drake’s story gets the closure" http://blog.eu.playstation....
Doesn't mean we won't see another Uncharted game, maybe they'll make a game about his brother, dunno, I honestly don't think it'll be the last Uncharted game we see
Considering their history of letting go of franchises to try new things , i'd say that yes they'll probably be done , at least for a long while . I just dont think they'll kill the character but just end their serie It's up to Sony to decide if they'd continue with another studio i guess
ever hear of prequels? they touched upon a younger nathan drake in earlier games. let's be very clear, sony will be wanting to make more games with nathan drake. how many times has hideo kojima said he's done with metal gear solid? this business is run by trying to bring in revenue.
Bitby, So.... Closure means the end of everything? I've had closure in relationships, but I still exist. Closing a chapter does not mean the end. You're jumping to conclusions.
Just remember, Kojima said the same thing about Snake a dozen times. Look where that's led. Anything can happen.
I'd rather have Naughty dog coming up with new ideas, and making new IPs. The Last Of Us. Come on. If they set out to make a new IPs, they make incredible new IPs. Why is everyone so hung up on keeping Naughty Dog making the same games. Their talent is wasted when they're not innovating.
The best selling console of all time is PS2. Is there any Nathan Drake in there? Or does PS3 and PS4 not selling well despite all those new icon? He's Drake, not Snake or Mario or Master Chief.
I am pretty sure Naughty Dog can come up with someone as great as Nate. Its up to ND, if they want to end the franchise, they will end it. There is also The Last Of Us. So they can make 2 or 3 more great games out of it.
If people told them to make Jak or Uncharted instead of TLOU, we would've never had TLOU. Now people are begging for TLOU2. See what happens when talented developers don't listen to inexperienced and impatient teenagers on the internet?
Uncharted will be just fine. Even if the franchise comes to an end with Uncharted 4, which I doubt, Naughty Dog has an unannounced IP and The Last Of Us to work with.
I would rather see a new Legend of Dragoon, MediEvil, or Ape Escape instead of Uncharted 20.
I would love to see those as well, but those games aren't going to sell consoles.
So as long as the game sells consoles the game itself is irrelevant? I love the Uncharted series but I don't see how they can push it past 4 story wise.
because money is what sony and most companies strive to make. do you honestly think god of war is dead? no, those other games are not irrelevant but consumers have decided which is more relevant.
I assure you those games will sell consoles more than Uncharted 20 will.
Why would they? Thats like killing off Batman. The only reason to do it is for a marketing scheme.
As long as ND kept on making great games it wouldn't be an issue(at least not for me) I'd like to see them do a Bond game in the style of Uncharted 2 with the trains etc. It'd be great imo
Better end with sucess then milked like crazy just to take money from gamers. Everything that as a beginning must end someday. The problem with the delay is that now the game must be a masterpiece that change videogames, something like never been done, besides the 1080/60, open world, new types of gameplay, 3D with 4k, lol. Every single aspect of the game will be explore and it wil be in a bad way: The games just have 4 pistols, or the sky is not blue enough, the hair of nathan moves to much, the lack of grass in one picture. I think is gonna be crazy...
the scrutinity was going to happen without the delays . It's time to stop caring about the expectations of the press and some people ...
i y need an strong ip you dont kill it until you have atleast 2 more... look for example mgs in mgs4 trailers we all saw snake killing himself with a gun... in halo 3 chief was lost in deep space but eh there is another trilogy from 343... even gow3 ends the story of kratos revenge... well its up to nd.....
The problem with most gamers on here is that they're incapable of letting things end, the second this releases and people start beating it they will be begging ND for another one as usual, same thing happens every time with MGS, Kojima can't catch a break from that series, maybe this time he will not give in again... I doubt it though, imagine all the new IP's we could've had from him by now if people didn't condemn him to making only MGS games for the last 10 years. I hope this is the last Uncharted, the series has had a good run, let ND do something different now, and for the love of god don't start begging them to go back to making Crash or Jak and Daxter games, they've both got enough sequels as it is, those IP's would look really out of place on current generation technology anyway...
I bet the title of this game refers to Sully.
He doesn't have to die. Just make spin-offs with different characters and experiment with new story and art directions and gameplay features that wouldn't fly in normal Uncharted featuring Drake. Also, do more side-game stuff like FFF. Wouldn't mind a Pinball, Board, Visual Novel, Fighting, or RPG in that vein.
I think they can kill him off if it serves the story, and I have no doubt that they can come up with another great protagonist. Just look at Joel and Ellie from the Last of Us!
Nathan Drake is bae <3
Another nonsense article. Why would they in the first place? This way you can write articles all day. But ND can make quality games wiithout Nathan Drake.
Why this article is stupid.... You should be ashamed of yourself for writing this drivel. You owe me the time, that I can never get back, it took to read this silliness.
Based on the article tittle without reading it I would say it's yhe same reason why Microsoft won't kill master chief Nintendo Mario sets sonic EA call of duties and so forth gamers like it and buy it regardless of how awful at least one of those I mention above. IF IT SALES IT WILL KE BEEN MADE .
How many times must I say it? Uncharted: Birth of a scoundrel.The Sullivan chronicles.
no one wants to see that old weeze bag for 10 hours. You make an uncharted with the hot hindu, or the hot asian chick from uc2 multiplayer and I'll buy that. Not that used car salesman with the cheesed out hawaiian shirts.
This is actually totally wrong. It's not Nathan Drake they can't kill off, it's Naughty Dog. ND has proved with last of us that THEY sell the games. It's their reputation that instantly puts ANYTHING they do in the must-have-and-probably-GOTY-ca ndidate category. They're one of the few developers that can do what they damn well please because they're Naughty ****ing Dog.
Who will buy a ps4 after? :)
Sony cant afford to pay its debts, let alone kill of an iconic money making character.
Cash Cow. Mooooooo!!!
Nathan Drake iconic? Not at all, I suppose he's fairly popular amongst forum dwelling gamers but not at all in real life. He's easily replaceable. He's not in the league of Kratos or Master chief and obviously no character comes close to Mario.
I like the uncharted games but only uncharted 2 was great i don't get the fascination behind the franchise but to each there own..
Nathan Drake has been getting older throughout the Uncharted games and I think there will be a point when he will be too 'old' or ND and/or Sony could continue to milk the franchise into the ground. Personally, I'd like to see ND move on to something else when they are good and ready. Uncharted 4 doesn't necessarily have to be the last one, but I'd prefer to see the end of Nathan Drake and co. end on a high note rather than sequel, after sequel after sequel. In short, I don't want to see it end up like the Die Hard movies (First three good, last two awful).
they can't afford to kill Drake but they can postpone the hell out of him.
