Uncharted 4 director says this E3 will be Nathan Drake's last

Apparently Neil Druckman hinted that this might be Nathan Drake's last "E3 showing", does not mean it's the last of Drake but something is obviously up and we'll hear more in the coming weeks.

The story is too old to be commented.

Until Uncharted 4 sells over 10million copies.

"Remember Mon$y Talks"

Not sure mate. With Naughty Dog, Passion talks.

Crash Bandicoot was the best selling franchise they ever had and they left all that behind.

These guys are not about the money.

Myst-Vearn1280d ago

They are passionate for sure but this is still business. The reason they can afford leaving Uncharted franchise behind is because they and Sony know they can and will create another million-selling franchise.

itBourne1280d ago

Naughty Dog had to leave Crash behind. They didn't have a choice.

bouzebbal1280d ago

they just need to make TLoU 2 and it will burry Uncharted in sales just like TLoU1 did.
Maybe they can also give us a mature Jak & Daxter. YES i can dream

elazz1280d ago

Their plan was first to make JAK on PS3 but then they went with Uncharted. Looking into that The Last of Us surpassed 10m sales I think they'll do fine with a new IP while going forward with The LAst of Us sequel and giving Uncharted a proper ending.

I think ND should develop Agent, for R*. Lord knows what Ol'Danny boy is gonna do with it...

jb2271280d ago

They may continue the series, but the writing is on the wall that UC4 will be Nathan Drakes last.

Forbidden_Darkness1280d ago

They do specifically state that it is Nathan Drakes last game, not the Uncharted series' last game. That and the fact that Naughty Dog has proven they can make multiple different IPs that sell extremely well, that I don't think they're worried about having to make a new IP.

rainslacker1280d ago

As much as I like Uncharted, and love to see new games in a series I enjoy, I also respect a dev/pub that can leave a game series on a high note. Sometimes, constant regurgitation of the same thing makes it less appealing.

Soc51280d ago

exactly, this franchise makes too much money, there's no way Drake is going away permanently. He'll be back in some form or another.

Plot Twist:

They'll milk the series much more, but they will just don't show them on E3

All good things must eventually come to an end. ='(

SoapShoes1280d ago

I don't believe it... Insomniac made it sound like A Crack in Time was Ratchet & Clank's last adventure together.

Kurisu1280d ago

Maybe they're looking at certain "tired" franchises, and don't want Drake to become like that.

SoapShoes1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

Well if it doesn't turn into Tomb Raider where it's crap game after crap game that'd be a good thing. I don't think that Uncharted would have that problem, there are lots of historical stories to tell but I think whatever they do is fine I just don't believe they are going to end it.

As for Ratchet it only got to be "tired" from all of the spinoffs. They only had two full PS3 games, that's less than the PS2 and ACIT was the best one.

Dirtnapstor1280d ago

Ending things on a bang, a high note. Better that way than to die with a whimper.

Savage Starlight & TLOU2!

Kurisu1280d ago

Hopefully Drake goes out with a BANG!

MasterCornholio1280d ago

I hope he doesn't get blown up.

:(

Nekroo911280d ago

Well something drastic will happen, thats for sure.

They were supposed to kill Elena on UC2 but Amy Henning was against that, but shes no longer a member of ND.

Someone will die , now lets wait and see.

pivotplease1280d ago

Man U2 was already amazing. If Elena bit the dust that would have been earth-shattering. They still delivered a great story without the tragedy but imagine how dark and memorable that ending would have been.

comebackkid98911280d ago

This is the way the Drake ends.

I can see them ending his story at least for a while and bringing him back a few years from now. They could just use someone else's story or come up with a new game, we'll have to wait and see how it ends.

pivotplease1280d ago

I'm going to say TLoU trilogy and a new IP will become their focus but who knows?
