Nathan Drake Will Be Returning Beyond Uncharted 3

A lot of franchises are set to reboot in the near future. The Spider-Man movie series is getting an entirely new cast, director and writers, and the characters are changing as well. Devil May Cry has received a lot of criticism for the new "emo" Dante. To a lesser extent, Cole McGrath from inFamous was getting a serious makeover into some sort of skateboarder for the sequel, but the fan backlash was so enormous that developers Sucker Punch decided to change him back. (Naughty Dog, Next-Gen, PS3, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Uncharted is nothing without Nathan Drake!

A game staring Elena with a lot of RPG elements. Talking to townsfolk to uncover the story. You will meet up with Drake at some point but it will be a spin off staring Elean, her character and a new character her husky Scruffy. You can train Husky to fetch, dig and attack. Elena's Camera will be used to gather evidence on different factions in the game. While she is doing all this Drake will come into in the end of course ending up being right in the thick of things. What do you guys think? PSP2 exclusive?

A portable RPG? I like that. If ND do make a psp title, I hope it's a spin off, best to keep the main series on the ps3 for the best.
Pozzle  +   1770d ago
Um...duh? It's a popular series and he's a popular character. Why would ND want to change that? o_O
Cajun Chicken  +   1770d ago
Because they did the same with Jak.
Jaces  +   1769d ago
I think that they'll finish up UC3 then start working on Jak4 afterwords they'll throw us another Uncharted.

That's what I'm hoping for at least.
crzyjackbauer  +   1769d ago
lets just hope uncharted 3 doesent have an ending that involves blue monsters or dead nazi monsters
i was ok on the first UC but on the second one
whats next? terminators?
ND start working on JAK4 now
or atleast gimme an Jak & daxter HD trilogy

"Jak & daxter HD trilogy"

Hell yes, this would sooth me over till Jak4. One of my favorite series last gen.

About the Uncharted "monsters" and ancient civilization inhabitants, what was so bad about that? It was just throwing a little bit of a Tomb Raider twist in there which isn't a bad thing at all.

It wasn't an insanely crazy twist, just something enough to throw you off guard and keep it fresh. I mean when you go in search of ancient treasures and cities you can't tell me you'd be more than happy to find everything absolutely ordinary with nothing to jump around the corner or silently stalk you?

It'd be a bit boring IMHO.

TRU but i dont mind sully getting his own spinoff
Robearboy  +   1769d ago
Personally I wouldnt like this IP to be milked, all of the classics know that you stop at the top otherwise the "franchsie" will just turn into another COD

Nathan Drake and the Guardian of Bud Light!
ElementX  +   1769d ago
Mentioning Nathan Drake and that cheap sh!tty beer in the same sentence is blasphemy. Why not drink a real man's beer like Sierra Nevada or some micro brew?
Orionsangel  +   1769d ago
I needed a beer with light in the title.
shadowknight203  +   1769d ago
even so, ND can always create a born child fathered by Drake in say Drakes Deception or Uncharted 4,5,6 ect..if the series ever does need a "reboot" in times to come. personally I think the idea of it is genius given its never been done before in video games and say if Drake does become old to the general audience, it would give ND the name that Uncharted sells and a new face to call home-to grow upon for a new generation.

Eh, Crash Bash was developed by Eurocom.

And I believed the same thing, that after 4 games, they would create a new IP yet again.
But Uncharted is the most popular of their franchises, maybe this time around, they'll try to keep the series going.
Crash and Jak were also quite popular, but Crash had to be abandoned (who knows if they would have made more of them) and Jak wasn't unanimously loved because of Jak 2 and Jak X (the series as a whole is still great, but only the original is genre defining), and both Jason Rubin and Andy Gavin left after Jak 3 :/

Anyway, the only thing I want to know isn't if they'll keep doing Uncharted or create a new IP, I'd rather know if Uncharted 4 is going to be called Uncharted : World Racing.

Actually, I want a Jak 4 announcement.

Abandoning the Uncharted series will cause the second coming of the christ :/
ChristianGamer  +   1769d ago
So they intend on milking drake huh? If the Uncharted PSP rumour is true and Uncharted 4 breaks cover this gen then Drake may just be the next Ratchet or Clank.
As much as I believe Microsoft milk Halo, Master Chief has only been in 1 Halo game this gen. Thats 1 out of 4 games this gen.
CaptainPunch  +   1769d ago
I don't want the series to be milked. Knowing Naughty Dog that's not going to happen. I do want another Uncharted after the 3rd one. If the sequels are going to be as good as the previous installments that I'm all for it.
shadowknight203  +   1769d ago
so long as its amazingly gud it should milk it..

Why not. If the games are good and so is the story I see no reason as why they should stop.
shadowknight203  +   1768d ago

SnakeMustDie  +   1769d ago

Lol, Ico vs Kratos...could you imagine that
LoneWanderer09  +   1769d ago
it be awesome to play a game like this hahaha
Close_Second  +   1769d ago
Spider-Man 1 and 2 were great but Spidy 3 fell into the same trap of trying to do too much to top the previous installments. It also needed more time after part 2 before it was released.
LoneWanderer09  +   1769d ago
Drake is Uncharted
hennessey86  +   1769d ago
its like saying
lara croft will return in the next tomb raider game, drake is uncharted.
shadowknight203  +   1768d ago
agree. but drake is also a figment of nuaghty dog, thus anything naughty dog can create can also be implemented into future uncharted's without drake and still create an uncharted game worthy of its name
