Nolan North Talks Uncharted 5: “You Don’t Want to Jump the Shark”

Nolan North has spoken about the possibility of Uncharted 5 after the "final" entry in Naughty Dog's iconic series.

As much as I love the series, I feel the series closed nicely.

Now another spinoff, sure bring it on. I actually think Chloe is more "Lara Croft-ish" than Lara Croft herself in the new series. I was skeptical of her holding a game as the lead in Lost Legacy, but I thought it turned out nicely.

I'd like to see more like that, with cameos of characters... and hey, even Nathan and Elena themselves. But we kind of know how *Spoiler* their lives play out into their retirement, that their lives settled down after UC4. Now, coming out of retirement later in an older age, with their daughter? I guess that's a possibility. It would need a really strong narrative, a strong reason to pull them back in. Heck, maybe even just the kidnapping of their daughter could bring them back in. I think it needs to wait some years though. Let TLOU 2 shine, and maybe get a new IP.

We'll see. One of my favorite series of all time. We named our daughter after Elena even. (which doubles as Ellie nickname, from TLOU) If it gets done, I expect it to have a purposeful, impacting story or a solid spinoff. No rush.

A whole game of shooting tennis balls in the attic! Epic!

I highly doubt they could beat Uncharted 4 but I would love to see them try.

They never did better than Uncharted 2 you mean.

SpinalRemains1381509d ago (Edited 1509d ago )

Everyone can beat Uncharted 4. It's a fairly easy game. J/k.

I actually loved the spinoff one with the women. That was loads of fun exploring. I love the little cartoon stills at the end too when the credits roll. That was a nice touch.

Personally I think Uncharted 4 was a good end to the series. As much as I love Uncharted I'd like a new IP from them next gen.

Jin_Sakai1511d ago

If there’s another Uncharted game it’s likely being made by the new San Diego Studio which has former Naughty Dog and Rockstar devs working there.

Dirtnapstor1510d ago (Edited 1510d ago )

Agreed, good closure to the series. However, remember the charts and pics of all the ‘undiscovered’ locations eluded to? Potential adventures with their daughter Cassie?

ClayRules20121510d ago

Yeah, I agree. Uncharted 4 was a beautiful sendoff for Nathan Drake, Sully & Elena. And I very much enjoyed Sam’s role in it. I want Naughty Dog to go and make a new iP.

sprinterboy1510d ago

New ip for sure, 4 is the magic number just gets silly after that.

I'd like to see where Uncharted could go with Chloe and Nadine the two worked well in Lost Legacy. Or they could do a game with Sam and Sully I just want a new Uncharted game.

LegoIsAwesome1510d ago

Yes exactly. Just becaude Nathan story is finish doesnt mean the Uncharted is finished. Well technicaly the numbered games which is Uncharted 1 to 4 is finish. But Lost Legacy is, I think ND test market, is just beginning.

Uncharted 4 ended things on a nice note, it wouldn't be fair to spoil that

Only thing I could think of doing is have another studio create Uncharted games but set it after Uncharted 2 or 3 where Uncharted 4 never happened and allow the new developers to craft a new line of games so they don't step on the ending NaughtyDog gave us.

Basically say, "this is the original and official ending, but here's our games, an alternative tale"

It would show respect to NaughtyDogs work

porkChop1510d ago

Why not just focus on a new character instead then?

That would be like someone coming in and replacing MGS4 with a new game just so they could continue Snake's story. That wouldn't go well.

-Foxtrot1510d ago

Yeah but the article is talking about Uncharted 5 as in Nate, Elena and Sully

If they WERE to use those characters again I'd rather see an alternative timeline then continuing from Uncharted 4 after the ending ND gave the characters.

nucky641510d ago

if they HAD to do another uncharted, a prequel with nate and sully on their very first adventure would be what i want to see. sort of going back to where it all started. i'd love to see the scene where/how they first meet.

deathtok1510d ago

Did they leave something out of Uncharted 3 when Nate met Sully?

Donnie811510d ago

Play uncharted 3 it shows all about it

ClayRules20121510d ago

How Nate & Sully met for the first time was shown in Uncharted 3.

nucky641509d ago

i get they showed that meeting in UC3, but a preqeul would show much more. i think, from a story perspective, it's the most interesting way to do another uncharted IF they insist on doing one. just doing another UC with more adventure seems kind of redundant - and i'd rather see a new IP than that.

whitbyfox1509d ago

No they already showed that you just played Uncharted 4 after jumping from Xbox 360 you should get a clue son.

Don't step on the ending, just completely ignore it while letting it call itself the "official" ending!

We get it, you hated 4 because you can't handle Nadine. lmao

oasdada1510d ago

i would prefer new playable characters in the potential new uncharted and somewhere near the end of the game they would need help and would seek out an old adventurer living in sully residence, when they ring the bell they are welcomed by none other than nathan drake him self! now that would be epic!
