The latest installment in the Uncharted series by SCEA developer Naughty Dog hosts a suspicious reference to a "deadly fungus". Coincidence?
Eh, wow, that was well spotted... not sure how related it is, but if it's been in development for a while, ND may have known about it and fired it in as an intentional reference... or they're developing it...
Or just a coincidence. Still makes you wonder....
Thats too much of a coincidence. I mean there is no deadly fungus in UC. Very cool find though.
Can't be a coincidence. They wouldn't have made that text as legible. That's too clear. Was mean't to be read.
would be amazing to see loads of easter eggs in exclusive games leading up to it. As nothing like thats ever been done before.
Oh Crap! Nathan Drake in a Biohazardish game! If this doesnt surprise any gamer nothing will! I hope I am right! iWaggler never cease to amaze me with his skills in gaming.
I don't see how it could be a coincidence. That kind of story really has no place in the Uncharted universe. Pretty neat tie-in if it is one.
What this means to me is that the events of "The Last of Us" happen in the future (though not too distant). If the fungus was a serious threat during the Uncharted 3 timeline, then Drake and Sully would have had bigger concerns than chasing some old lady around. So the question is not just how long does it take the fungus to wreck the world? Instead, we should be asking, "Does Drake survive for Uncharted 4?"
Too much to be a coincidence. Whether or not it means ND are the developers dunno. BUT, ND is/was quite close to Bungie, even when they were a MS only dev. They used to have basketball matches etc. between teams, so this could be the Bungie game!
Anyone else in the same boat I'm in? That is, the boat that seriously doesn't give a sh*t about a vague teaser for an unannounced game?
Team Soho comes across as the only Sony studio that has had the time on it's hands since the 2006 date the youtube page was created. In that timespan they have only done Eyepet which was didn't take them long to make. The Getaway series was cancelled around that 2005/2006 date... they wouldn't have done that if not for a very good reason. If it is not Team Soho then what on earth have they been working on for so long?!
I know. This is just the kind of things I like seeing in gaming.....(2012)
Oh man, Naughty Dog MUST be the developers, sh*t just got real lol MAYBE an Insomniac game? ND and Insomniac always were close and cross referenced their Jak and Ratchet series Great find anyway
It wouldn't make sense if it was Insomniac since their working on Overstrike and just finished R&C:A4O and R3. Unless the other Insomniac company is making it and if it comes out in 2013. I think it's Santa Monica's game since their quite close with ND as-well and GOW3 released last year which give's them awhile to work on a new game.
I doubt it's ND, I don't think they are big enough to handle multiple large projects like this at the same time.
Remember that it's been rumored to have been in development since 2006. So, it could be almost anyone.
It could be Santa Monica but they are also helping with Starhawk development. Anybody ever thought it could be SCE London Studios?
GG or Santa, its gotta be one of them, no one else could have possibly had the time surely.
Here is who ND thanked at the end of UC3. http://img528.imageshack.us... Continue speculation. The standout for me is Bungie.
I think you just narrowed it down to the 8 developers we should be thinking about. I agree Bungie? Why would Bungie be credited in a Naughty Dog game? It's definitely strange. For some reason I'm sorta of going to put my money on Bungie/Sony Santa Monica for the time being. Nice Find mate.
Bungie was credited in U2 as-well.
Bungie was in the credits of uncharted 2 as well.
credited for multiplayer inspirations....same as UC2 Bungie and ND have a good relationship and mention each other frequently in interviews, weekly updates, etc.
what's sucker punch been up to?
with Activision for its new IP!!!! Which is multiplatform! sooooooooooooooo nope Bungie isn't in the developer of "The Last of Us" But this is, interesting! an amazing and very great find. Video games in Sony always tease of a a game coming in the future. heavy rain had the chimera statue and that kinda foreshadowed R3... not uncommon. Just like Infamous 1 with the Sly cooper 4 easter egg. We will have to wait and see.
Im thinking Subway.
respawn is credited as well, shit just hit the fan.. thanks for the find, havent beaten U3 yet, doing lots of work before the end of the semester.
Parapraxis, Bungie helped Naughty Dog develop their netcode for Uncharted 2 multiplayer. That's why they are thanked in Uncharted 2, and also Uncharted 3, as a continuance of gratitude for the help they provided for the MP experience running in both UC2 and UC3.
Thanks for the spoilers jackass, now I know who gets thanked at the end of U3 >:( ;)
@Panthers its so obvious now !
I think they had help from Bungie and Respawn for the MP portion of the game. I remember watching a video when Uncharted 2 was being released and when asked about the multiplayer, they said they had help from Infinity Ward (at the time).
Redrawn? As in EA's Respawn Entertainment with Jason West and Vince Zampella? Surprised they're in the credits... Also, what are the chances Respawn are making The Last Of Us? I wouldn't imagine it'd high since they are owned by EA and they don't really do exclusives. Although Sony have had a close relationship with them with the exclusive NFS DLC, extra content and times DLC. Im really intrigued now.
If not a coincidence, brilliant on ND's part. Its small references like this that make cool games like Uncharted 3 even cooler. Think about it. UC3 first full trailer shown at VGAs 2010. UC3 releases a month before VGAs 2011 containing a possible reference to a game that will be unveiled at VGAs 2011. Could ND be the developer?
Make sense as to why the first screenshot is so god damn stunning :P
maybe it would be a left 4 dead like game for the ps3 ?
Just like to point out how I called it.
holy shit, concidence? then again devs always do these, sly 4 easter egg in infamous for example.
sly4 and infamous are made by the same developer -sucker punch....nobody knows who is developing the last of us yet but from this easter egg naughty dog might be the developers
The next Sly coming out isn't being developed by Sucker Punch
So? Was Valve making Super 8 when they had that easter egg in Portal 2? No.
the other slys were so i just assumed...oh well....here come the disagrees and a bunch of people telling me that im wrong
Man, you guys are crazy. lol That's why sometimes i like geeks and gamers (you know who you are). I like theories when they are creative; less when it is just aimed for console war.
IF this is a Naughty Dog game...SOLD. Without question.
Doubt ND would of had time to develop this during the making of U3. I also dont think GG would do this kind of game (just an assumption) plus K3 was only released in February. Same with Sucker Punch. Obviously not Bungie or Insomniac. My bet would be on Santa Monica. GOW||| was released years ago and I think their moving on. But seeing as its probably by 1 of those studios then it's pretty safe to say this game is bound to be good.
GOW3 wasn't released years ago, it was released in 2010.
Yeah early 2010 , anyway , my point is they would of had a lot of time. The only thing is I heard it started development in 2006, so I don't know how any of the devs I listed would of had time ?
Very nice lol. I don't think they are making it but they definitely know what it is. Could it be that exclusive FPS from Sony that was being talked about a few months back?
I hope its not a fps. It should be a third person shooter.
Oh god.....people are resorting to "Paul is dead" rumors from back in the 60's to hype things...... Cant wait for all the reveals to be done and over with and then we can wait for the influx of stories on how disappointed we all are ect...
I love how the header is designed to be a spoof of The Guardian newspaper haha Great find though. My mind is blown. But I still doubt it's ND developing it. Though I wouldn't mind if it was them
Probably a game made by Guerrilla, they are close to Naughty Dog. This is very interesting.
Hopefully not. The only great game they have made is KZ2. The other 9 range from terrible to good
shellshock nam 67 is THE best Vietnam game ever made. It lacked polish because they were rushed.
Yeah im not sure why no one is suspecting GG. Theyve been awfuly quiet and if kz3s rushed quality suggests, they could hav been attending 2 other projects. It was stated last year they were working on a new ip. Id add the link but im typing on my phone. Google it 4 proof. ...although id say its Santa Monica
Guerilla is developing something else. From the rumors going on, it seemed like a shooter in the sky or something - they used words like "soar" and "high" in the job descriptions. And besides, The Last of Us sounds like a zombie game.
Wow, no way that's a coincidence.
I Think Is Bungie that making game
I could have sworn in 2010 bungie signed an exclusive deal with activision to publish their new IP for the next 10 years.....? and that title is multiplatform.... so Sony would have had to pay bloody damn near twice that to get bungie to break that with activision to develop this New IP from Sony... File that under not in a million years on either of the 3 parties. -_-
I dont think its bungie. I would think it might be guerrilla games. Its been rumored for a while that they have been working on a new IP.
P.S. Great avatar ;).
holy crap! amazing developer......naughty dog? O_O cant wait for tomorrows reveal XD btw, nice find iwaggle3d :D
It's not tomorrow.. sorry It's on Sat, 12.10.11 Edit: Ohh nice =D lucky you, then again the world will end first over there /s x]
oh right, i live in asia so times faster here XD cant wait till the reveal is well revealed :D
@ R21: are you from the future?
WOW nice find....
They've been said to be working on a new IP for Sony! time to do some research!
Or Santa Monica Studio. It's been a-while since we've heard from them.
yeah i think its Santa Monica as well its been two years since there last game... plenty of time to work on a game.. not only that but the david cage rumors of Sony bringing him in for advise on a game about a year ago.. so its very very interesting stuff
