The Uncharted series has most likely come to an end, with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End being the last main entry developed by Naughty Dog. Judging from the ending of the game, this isn’t entirely a new information, but Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells has more or less confirmed it in an interview with GameInformer.
Speaking mostly about Uncharted 4’s standalone expansion, The Lost Legacy, Wells said Naughty Dog is just too busy with their ongoing projects. “I would say that Naughty Dog doing an Uncharted after this is unlikely. I would never say never, but we've got The Last of Us Part 2 on our plates and there's so much other stuff that [we want to explore],” he said. “It'd be hard. If we magically had that two-team, three-team studio, sure – it'd be great to keep doing it. We really love the franchise, but the studio has limited resources and lots of other ideas. I'd say the likelihood is low.”
Of course, this doesn’t mean we won’t see another Uncharted game as Wells said the likelihood of Naughty Dog developing a new one is low. This opens up an opportunity for Sony to hand over the IP to another developer. Maybe Guerrilla Games can take on the project and capitalize on their making of a well-developed open-world action game in Horizon: Zero Dawn.
With that said, we now know that Uncharted as a series might not be done and dusted yet, and most likely we’ll see a new developer taking the reins from Naughty Dog. They have delivered memorable adventures in the past decade and we can only hope that they’ll do justice to possibly their last Uncharted game with The Lost Legacy.
