It’s now revealed that the lead designer of Enslaved Mark Richard Davies is currently developing the game and has moved over to Naughty Dog from Ninja Theory.
Guess that's good, Enslaved was well received. Secondary Naughty Dog team eh? Does this leave room for Team 1 to do Unkarted?
the UC team has moved on to developing Uncharted 4 and it'll be a launch title for PS4.
I'll continue crossing my fingers for Jak 4
NOOOOOOOOO FFS NOOOOOOOOOOO Enslaved SUCKED ASS !!!
It's in good hands. The director of Uncharted 2 is directing this. Who knows, maybe the B team was developing Uncharted 3. www.naughtydog.com/site/post/ 834h472kmfs8/
I don't think Naughty Dog has a B team.
the levels in enslaved weren't really that well designed if you ask me...to much handholding in terms of platforming if you ask me...the levels themseleves though were quite beautiful and never felt repetitive though. That said, this is Naughty Dog. I'm sure they'll have a fair shake of input in the final level design as well.
I think after they finished Uncharted 3 they joined team 2 and started to help with the last of us.
Enslaved was kind of disappointing. The story was great, the environment was interesting, but the overall gameplay was a major letdown for me. That mixed with Ninja Theory's tenancy to blame their failures on anyone but themselves has made me lose a lot of respect for that team.
So NT's best guy left. Oh Capcom DMC s screwed again?
Oh god no. Enslaved was extremely poorly designed.
Funny, because I remember it being well received (Critically) and featured some of the best Videogame Motion Capture with Andy Serkis...
Enslaved was incredible. Can't wait for Enslaved 2!
yeah it was incredible not having to play the game, and making uncharted seem like it has tons of freedom by comparison.
It don't matter, so long as it has the Naughty Dog stamp of approval in the end it's gonna be good. Tell me I'm lying !
Doesn't mean that this ONE guy will have a dramatic effect on the level design of The Last of Us. They probably headhunted him.
No more news for a while? That makes me sad :/
There most likely be more info during E3 2012, even if it's just a new trailer. Something that got my attention was the emphasis on the fact that the trailer was taken from the Playstation 3. Will this be the last (one of the last) PS3 games, or will they release it as a PS4 launch title? A similar thing happened with God of War 2; they needed to decide whether to keep working on it as a PS2 title, or move development to the PS3. So what would it be for Last of Us?
It probably won't be a PS4 title as it's been rumoured to be in development for 2 years and is coming out in 2012. The PS4 will most likely come out in 2013/14. But this is probably ND's last PS3 game. But who knows, ND surprised me with this announcement.
Top notch Graphics like this only tells that the PS3 is going to stay a lil bit longer. And considering the PS2 installed based by the 5th year looks like an Uncharted 4 is on the way too. PS3 graphics continues ti grow just like Hirai said. That was his word of honor. I am pretty much content games look like this for the next few years as long as they polish the gameplay smoothly
i blame Ninja Theory's headman Tameem for Enslaved's execution and i will blame him for the "DmC" debacle... i'm not surprised he is still not at Ninja Theory given his former boss' attitude...
I knew it! i was just thinking about it! the last part where they show the outdoors it remind me to Endslave : The last O. btw a great game i just play it few weeks ago, you guys should, its like "ICO" but with more action and more modern settings and it has many Uncharted like set pieces a good game.. and good boss battle.
I bought Enslaved at launch.. One of the few probably.. Incredible game that begs for a sequel..
This is a positive sign, Enslaved featured some terrific Motion Capture with Andy Serkis (Also featuring male and female protagonists), with performances from top actors being easily captured in Enslaved, The Last of Us with his input added to Naughty Dog's fantastic motion capture track record will be a visually and character wise brilliant game. Now we just need some gameplay mechanic confirmations...
Naughty Dog could use the handholding. Now they can actually start making games instead of movies.
yeah like crash bandicoot or jak and daxter...wait a minute...
must be pretty sad seeing exclusive after exclusive announced for the ps3 when ur a 360 owner. If i were them id troll ps3 threads too, nothing else to do..
Must be sad thinking that everybody who doesn't approve of naughty dog is a Xbot.
Joined 3 hours ago, posted 3 hours ago, first post bashing Naughty Dog. Someone who is maybe using an alternative account because it's such a ridiculous statement they don't want it against their normal account? Who knows, they have one agree though.
I really enjoyed Enslaved....this title looks really promising
Enslaved, Uncharted.. Oh man, I'm really looking forward this game.
Fine by me. I loved Enslaved.
enslaved sucked ass :(
Now I'm really excited!
ND please make it a 2012 release. I won't mind even it's released by December.
I thought they already announced that the game is slated for a 2012 release?
nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
