Naughty Dog’s Uncharted franchise is one of the biggest and best-selling franchises in the gaming industry, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was supposed to be the series’ ending. However, according to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Creative Director Shaun Escayg, the series might not be over just yet.
In a recent interview with Eurogamer, he discussed the franchise’s huge world and diverse characters. When asked about whether if the Uncharted world is done and the series is over, he said he highly doubts it.
I wouldn’t say it’s the end. This thieving world is huge. There’s so many characters. Even before we settled on this particular story we were exploring Sullivan, we were exploring Cutter, and pairing each other up, thinking what would be right, what would have conflict, growth, something new, something fresh. And Chloe was the one that kept jumping out.
But to say the Uncharted world is done… I doubt that highly.
Escayg revealed that The Last of Us 2 team is currently working at slower pace to focus on Uncharted’s DLC since it is just two months away from release.
We have a truly ambitious schedule. The Last of Us is working but at a lot slower pace right now. The entire team is on Lost Legacy – that’s a couple hundred of us strong.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy releases on August 22 and August 23 in North America and Europe respectively for PS4.
