Evidence Adds Truth to Uncharted 3 Title, Concept Art

Earlier today, a listing for Uncharted 3: World of Deceit was listed on Amazon france. However, shortly after the appearance of the listing, it was discovered that the box art featured on Amazon was using an alleged “piece” of concept art that a Los Angeles-based “concept designer” created during an architecture class. This left many crying foul. We were just as skeptical, so we did some digging, and found evidence that suggests Albert Ng, the concept artist in question, likely did indeed work on Uncharted 3, therefore giving credence to this retailer listing, concept art and more importantly, the working title of Uncharted 3.

Looks like we now know the title to the follow up of the best game this gen.

NoLongerHere2975d ago (Edited 2975d ago )

I agree for the last part of the sentence, but I don't think that this guy worked on the game.

Great avatar btw.

Sev2975d ago

Did you read the article? He works for a company, that does concept art for Sony. He posts Uncharted 3 concept art showing a name that matches Amazon France's retail listing?

And you still don't think he worked on the game?

What more do you need?

Oh and yes, my avatar is excellent. Though, it's supposed to be animated, N4G doesn't do animated GIFs. Much cooler with "you" pew, pew, pewing.

If this is indeed real. Then the announcement is imminent. Probably at the VGAs again. I don't think they would allow any kind of leak too much before they are ready to announce something, especially if it has the subtitle on it.

DJ2974d ago

This Architecture Class artwork was produced back in March. And just look at the comments on his webpage:

"Huge improvement man! These are looking good! Nice in class presentation too haha."

"nice work al! can't wait to see what you come up with for this next one!"

"hey man nice work! you need a job with naughty dog! do you play much uncharted 2 online?"

"Seems someone at saw your blog post and decided to play a game of "Jump to Conclusions":

Sorry, but just isn't adding up.

TheLastGuardian2974d ago

you mean this gif? You can have gifs as your avatar in the N4G forums but not on the main page.

OT: I hope inFAMOUS 2 comes with an Uncharted 3 beta code.

I think it's equal to Gears of War but has more potential from here on out whereas Gears is more conventional in terms of gameplay and can't, inherently, evolve as much as Uncharted. Gears 2, in my eyes pretty much refined the formula of the series to a near absolute top so I think Uncharted 3 will be a bigger step from it's predecessor than Gears 3 will. They're pretty much the defining current-gen series correspondingly on each platform.

A Cupcake for Gabe2975d ago

Gears is about walking slow and shooting from cover. Uncharted is an adventure game. Please shut up with .

TRU3_GAM3R2975d ago

my favourite action adventure game.


Uncharted 3 game of the year 2011. Enough said.. :D

T9X692975d ago

It's kind of funny you posted this comment.

I said in that an 8 wasn't a bad score for Fable 3, and got a reply saying "We'll remember that the next time a PS3 exclusive gets an 8..."

So I replied with

"What does PS3 exclusives have to do with anything? The only reason people give shit to people for PS3 exclusives when they don't score 9's and 10's is because fanboys hype every PS3 exclusive like it's a masterpiece and deserves nothing less than a 9. You see some people on this site, like me for example, say they are excited for this game, and can't wait for it. Not, this game is going to be perfect, GOTY 2010, AAA exclusive, etc. If fanboys kept their mouth shut, people wouldn't give them shit when a certain game doesn't get nothing but 9's and 10's."

And you prove my point, and you're not the first person either, I've seen that same comment posted 100 times. This game isn't even announced yet, no screens, rumored/fake art work, and nothing but speculations. Yet people like you are already posting stupid comments like that. So the next time someone is giving you shit about a game in a review article, remember my comment.

NoLongerHere2975d ago (Edited 2975d ago )

Interesting comment T9X69.


yewles12975d ago

*sigh* The idiocy is STRONG with T9X69... -_-'

DaBadGuy2974d ago

@T9X69 I remember reading that comment before. I agreed with you then I agreed with you now. It comes from both sides, if people didn't act so superior and attack the other console to justify theirs, there wouldn't be so much bullshit whenever review scores come out.

@BLACKBOIJONES GOTY year is relative, since every gaming website has their own GOTY. It's based on personal experience and what game you had fun with the most in the year. For you, Uncharted 2 could have been GOTY 2009, for someone else it could have been Batman Arkham Asylum, for someone else it could have been Borderlands.

This year isn't over yet I've still got a ton of games paid off and waiting for me. Next year so far we only know of a handfull of stuff. Off the top of my head we got Duke Nukem Forever, Crysis 2, Batman Arkham City, Dead Space 2, Little Big Planet 2, the way things are going maybe Gran Turismo 5, etc. so it's shaping up to be a good year.

ico922975d ago

why the hell did you get so many degrees for that

T9X692975d ago

Maybe because everyone on this earth doesn't think Uncharted 2 was the best game this gen?

bustamove2975d ago

Or maybe because someone is using multiple accounts?

Uncharted 2 was an amazing game so I don't see why you're giving it so much heat.


Its bcuz some 360 trolls r hating on UNCHARTED. I have bpth consoles and i admit i luv gears of war and halo but i also admit that the ps3 has the best exclusive this gen

Chuk_Chuk2975d ago

Good to see journalist actually researching stuff and not posting the first flamebait title that comes to mind. Personally i quite like the sound of the name.

FACTUAL evidence2975d ago

the number 3 gets change of color. Maybe a golden yello, or just white. Man I hope this game looks better than UC2, I KNOW ND can do it. Also hope we can get a co-op campaign using 2 drakes, similar to Dead rising 2. That would be perfect.

wedgie2974d ago

Use Drake and Elena for co-op. Because the game is so much about story, it would be really detracting if there were 2 Drakes. Feel like something would lost.

acedoh2975d ago

there would be legalities for using a game title and then creating fake concept art and title. So I am beginning to think this is legitimate. Naughty Dog started teasing the public two years ago with Uncharted 2. Then they gave us the first trailer during the VGA's. I think Uncharted 3 is taking the same path and we will be seeing this game out next year.

Taggart4512975d ago

It's is a little odd though. Don't you think that Sony would crack down on just a single guy like this? How could he get it online and no one find it until now? This conceptual artwork was posted on that blog back in March of 2010. And it's been silent since?

I don't know what to think....too many pieces of conflicting evidence adding up. I guess we just wait.

doctorstrange2975d ago

Can't wait, i love uncharted

FrigidDARKNESS2975d ago

Love the title of the game it's om my to buy list for 2011.

mrv3212975d ago
