Naughty Dog’s Shaun Escayg Has Said The Studio Can Say “Never Never” To A New One not mapped game because it just loves the franchise and feels like there’s a lot more to see in Nathan Drake’s world.
Escayg was questioned about not mappedfuture by GameMe during an interview about The Legacy of Thieves Collection, and while he understandably didn’t answer the question directly, Escayg did offer fans some hope.
Will Naughty Dog ever make a new Uncharted game?
“I think we can say with certainty that we can never say never,” said Escayg. “Yes. not mapped is a franchise we love – which the studio loves. I love, and Kurt [Margenau] Loves. It’s a world we want to see more of. So I can definitely say that.”
As for why Naughty Dog chose to remaster old games for the PlayStation 5 rather than create a new one, Escayg explained that it was worth Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy to the new hardware because it’s “literally the best way” to experience their stories and characters.
Elsewhere in the interview, it was revealed that despite being part of the franchise’s original development team, neither Escayg nor Margenau are involved in the upcoming not mapped movie.
“I’m excited to see Tom Holland take on the character,” Margenau said. “I don’t know anything other than the trailers we’ve seen. I’m just excited.”
Advice: I wouldn’t mind a new Uncharted game, but I wouldn’t mind not having one either
Zamena writes… I love not mapped and would buy a new game on launch day without reading a single review but i feel like Uncharted 4 was a perfect ending to the series. That said, I want to see more of Nadine and Chloe, so if Naughty Dog does a spin-off that isn’t overshadowed by Drake and Sully, that would be very welcome.
In other news, Gran Turismo 7 won’t be delayed anyway, and Destruction All Stars maybe free to play.
