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.
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.
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.
Naughty Dog had to leave Crash behind. They didn't have a choice.
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
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...
They may continue the series, but the writing is on the wall that UC4 will be Nathan Drakes last.
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.
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.
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.
dont tell me hes going to die..
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. ='(
I don't believe it... Insomniac made it sound like A Crack in Time was Ratchet & Clank's last adventure together.
Maybe they're looking at certain "tired" franchises, and don't want Drake to become like that.
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.
Ending things on a bang, a high note. Better that way than to die with a whimper. Savage Starlight & TLOU2!
Hopefully Drake goes out with a BANG!
I hope he doesn't get blown up. :(
Same with Sully
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.
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.
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.
I'm going to say TLoU trilogy and a new IP will become their focus but who knows?
A new uncharted game featuring old Nathan drake with white hair and big beard would be awesome, like MGS4 where you played as old snake :)
Old drake. Now with a muscle suit and excessively shiny glutes.
Maybe they'll kill off Sully, and then Drake will become the new Sully for the new guy/gal.
This is one of the reasons why I always had a Playstation, Sony makes the IPs, let them run their course and then, end them in an satisfying way. I'm so done with milking franchises, all these anual games don't get a cent from me. Sony takes risks all the time with new IPs when other companies won't even dream about it... Some games will be loved others not so much but the variety is always welcome.
I agree they do create a lot of new stuff, but they do push some IP's past their prime. R&C comes to mind, and maybe GOW, although they're mostly spread out over some years and platforms. I wish they'd push their JRPG IP's a little more though.
Kind of sad to hear that, anyone else remember being mind blown at the Uncharted 2 stage demo? the part when the building falls? yeah, it was always a high light when Uncharted popped on screen. Guess it's a new IP after Uncharted, we don't need TLOU2.
Please be a space game. Something in space with ND talent please please please
I wouldn't argue with that, they are more than capable at doing well with something new, yeah! I could dig that.
That would be awesome.
We do need a TLOU2.
I definately wouldn't say no to a TLOU2 but I'd rather have a new Naughty Dog IP. PS4 needs it's own ND IP.
Sad...but its a good opportunity for ND to come up with great new ips
the last of us too
Good riddance, need a new IP.
new IP's aren't bad, but this is certainly not a good riddance situation. UC has not overstayed its welcome.
I would rather they stopped it before it did tho, as much as I dont like the fact this will be the last I feel they know what they want for the game to shine. I cant wait to see what new game they can come up with next though.
Sad its ending tho :(. At least i know its gonna be fricken awesome!!! :D
Such a bitter sweet thing! Obviously a lot of us love uncharted, big time, but at the same time we can't keep having the same game over again. Naughty dogs ability to know when to let things go is a talent severely lacking in this industry right now. I'm glad the collection is coming to the ps4, I'll have all the main games in one place waiting for whenever I feel like going back, which will be a lot. I'm looking forward to the last installment, I'm sure it'll be a big one! And who knows, just because it's the last for Drake, doesn't mean it'll be the last uncharted.
I'm surprised that sony actually might allow this to happen I mean uncharted is a huge franchise to them only under gt right? Man props to them and naughty god for not milking the poor guy dry I assume this is gonna be the greatest uncharted yet and it ends with a satisfying bang....oooooo I'm ready
I'm not surprised, Sony let's the games run therir and them puts them to rest, I love that. The only franchise they actually keep pushing along is mlb the show and gran turismo and even that game sees years between releases. Sony is even letting guerilla games move away from killzone to onto a new ip with horizon, media molecule is finally moving away from lbp, sucker punch I believe is moving onto a new IP, and Sony's many other studios are working on God knows what. The legend of Zelda, super mario and gran turismo are the only games I don't mind continuing .
i think it's because Sony have faith in ND remember when no one thought TLOU would sell even 3 million since it's new IP and at the end of last gen ?! it managed to sell 8+ million on Ps3 alone So ...ND can do whatever thet want those guys don't fool around
I'm looking at the fact that they specifically use Drake's name, as in the series could very well continue, just with a new protagonist. Nate's kid, maybe?
Did you even click the link? All he says is "Looking mighty good for his last E3." Didn't mention a name at all.
So he's going out like Derek Jeter, Ray Lewis, and or Kobe Bryant. You either die a Hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the Villain.
MANLY TEARS ;_;
This is why I love Sony! They don't milk games over and over. After 4-5 games of an IP, they end it.
LOL you are kidding right?
But next year at E3 they will announce TLOU 2.
I guess that must mean that Uncharted 4's already set for as a pre-E3 2016 game then, right? I'd reckon it'd be a May game probably.
It was confirmed to release before the end of March next year.
man. never been so attached to a franchise like i have been with Uncharted. its literally like watching your favorite athlete on his final year before retirement. Damn you ND why did you have to be so damn good at your jobs
Could you imagine if they did a spin off like 25 years after the story of UC4 and Nathan Drake is pretty old say in his late 50s early 60s or so but it's his son who took after treasure hunting and gets into some trouble and drake has to rescue him or something
It wasn't called "A Thief's End" for nothing.
Let's end it with the bang, shall we ?
Maybe we will have another game with an elderly Drake, where we control him and make him yell at youngsters about being on the Facebbok too much and not getting outside like he used to.
It's time for some new IPs and Last of us sequel
As hard as it is for me to say goodbye to such an awesome franchise, I agree. Those saying no to a TLOU sequel, im sorry but the multiplayer alone makes me want a sequel. The multiplayer is just that unique & I love it.
Its for the best, drake had a great journey but uncharted is too good of a series to get milked and not end on a classic note
That's because A Theif's End will introduce us to Nathan and Elena's new born son: Jimmy Drake, the main character of the next Uncharted games along with his dog: Spike.
No no, not Jimmy. It'll be their daughter Lara!
