Uncharted’s Loss Is Tomb Raider's Gain

Given that Naughty Dog is giving up on one of its staple franchises, now is the best time for Tomb Raider games to capitalize on that.

This nonsense article also neatly sidesteps the fact that just because Naughty Dog are moving on from the franchise, that doesn't mean the franchise stops. ALL of the Uncharted games were amazing and the last one was a moving finale for Drake, but you can bet your bottom dollar the franchise will return after a well-earned hiatus with a BANG, even if it's handed to one of Sony's other studios to develop.

I love Uncharted (2 and 1 are my favourites). But there is such a thing as franchise fatigue especially with story or character driven games. So it makes sense to let a series rest, it’s good for the audience and it’s good for the developers who get to express their creativity on new projects. Like he⬆ said, it will return and if the gap is long enough that will be exciting for everyone.

Yea I don't see how naughty dog possibly giving us a new ip is a loss at all, it's exactly what I and most others want.

All the uncharted were awesome bit that series had its time now it's onto bigger and better things.

In 10 yrs time then sure I'd be up for another one but not now.

SenorFartCushion90d ago

To some live service nonsense most likely.

I’ll be screencapping this reply for the time they do announce their new game.

It’ll be an open world Souls ripoff with microtransactions and events

Sony Bend did great work on Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Since it is unlikely we are getting a Days Gone 2 I would like Bend to continue the franchise (and finally port over Golden Abyss to any other platform then Vita 😞)

It's silly to think that one of Playstations most successful franchise sony will stop making even after making a blockbuster film about it.

heck yeah! more of Eddie Raja please

Since when is not milking a franchise until it's diluted down to garbage like Call of Duty a bad thing? They have a golden franchise full of amazing games, no need to keep trying to squeeze more money out of it at expense of the quality of the game.

I agree. I’m actually glad that they’re not just making more Uncharted titles just to keep the franchise going. It ended. It was great. Let it rest.

isarai91d ago

"Loss"? "Giving up"? Bowing out after 6 extremely successful entries is not a loss, nor is it giving up. It's a well earned retirement. And honestly i dont have much hope in TR anymore, especially after being bought by Amazon.

jambola91d ago

Yeah, especially from a team like naughty dog who are well known to change it up from generation to generation

robtion90d ago

Naughty dog have amazing talent and I traditionally bought all of their games day 1. That is until TLOU2 (which I bought and enjoyed until 1/2 way through). Woke garbage.

MadLad90d ago

They've been making the same two IPs since the PS3.
What exactly have then been switching up.

And I actually love their games; just trying to see what they've been actually switching up.

jambola89d ago

ps1, crash bandicoot
ps2, jak and daxter
ps3, uncharted / tlou

Are people just going to ignore the last PlayStation games medley commercial? There is a new Uncharted game coming; it’s just not created by Naughty Dog.

"They've been making the same two IPs since"

Same guy who never criticizes Xbox for Halo, Forza, Forza Horizon, Gears studios for only ever having worked a single IP EVER. Hypocrite much?

Naughty Dog at least is working on a new IP and will average 1 new IP each generation. Which Xbox studios even make 1 new IP each gen?

MadLad90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Literally always gives credit to Sony where I feel it's due.
Said I really enjoyed Halo Infinite's campaign, but acknowledge that they dropped the ball with the online.
Loves Forza Horizon, yet don't have any interest in the original series.
Yes I do love Gears of War.
I also love Uncharted and the Last of Us (mainly the first one).

What does that have to do with me asking someone who claims Naughty Dog switches up their stuff every generation, when all they have made over three generations have been two IPs?

Please tell me how I'm wrong. I'll wait.

GotGame81890d ago

I agree with you first and foremost! This year is different though, because Microsoft bought Bethesda.

Hi-Fi, Redfall, and Starfield are all new IP'S. Without Bethesda, Microsoft would have nothing new as far as IP'S this year. Hi-Fi is fantastic. Redfall I am not getting a good vibe from, and doubt it will be nearly as good as Deathloop. That leaves Starfield. I am taking a wait and see attitude. If it's a buggy mess that will suck. With 1000 planets, are they going to be empty?

All that said. Uncharted is probably my favorite Playstation IP. Fantastic story telling with top notch graphics!



Uncharted and TLOU were on ps3 and ps4 so that's two generations not three. They're making a new ip for ps 5 right?

SDuck89d ago

you're counting re-releases in those 6 entries, right? Otherwise, what am I missing?

Zhipp89d ago

I think he's including the uncharted 4 dlc.

isarai89d ago

Golden abyss
Lost Legacy

I was quite frankly happy to hear they're not going to milk this franchise. I absolutely love it, and would hate to see it fall into Assassin's Creed territory. Another series I loved so much back in the day, I got a tattoo for it. At this point, I haven't even played half the AC games and never will. They hit it out of the park time and time again with Uncharted. Let it rest with dignity and on a really high note.

SoulWarrior91d ago (Edited 91d ago )

Uncharted 4 finished Drake's story perfectly, and after the medoicre 3rd entry in the TR reboot series I don't see how ND lost anything personally.

zsquaresoff91d ago

Pretty sure there will be another Uncharted game. It's Tomb Raider that has to actually prove itself as the last game in the series IMO, was not very good.

Sonic188190d ago

Because the last game was not developed by Crystal Dynamics

Pocahontas90d ago

I actually enjoy shadow the most but CD has the polish and feel.
