Uncharted Sully almost had his own game

When Nathan Drake’s storyline came to a natural end at the end of the year… Uncharted 4, developer Naughty Dog kept wondering what to do with the next game. They considered giving Sully a game of their own but ultimately chose to go with Chloe as the main focus Uncharted: The Lost Legacy instead of.

Choosing a character for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

Once Uncharted 4 was complete, the headlines at Naughty Dog wanted to make a sequel. Nathan Drake wouldn’t be fit for a new game, so the team had to look for a new protagonist. As Game Director Shaun Escayg explained: GQ Magazine, they tried to make Nathan’s mentor and sidekick Sullivan the main character, but when they “threw characters together” and “took them apart” to form a duo, they realized he wouldn’t be the best match. Instead, they went with Chloe. escayg said:

I clung to Chloe because she was always this intriguing character. So self-centered, so selfish. You just wanted to know what makes someone like that. And then when we combine that with Nadine – a thief and a mercenary – the disaster just unfolds in your head and you think, “Oh my god, this is such a big conflict.”

In other news, Elden RingDirector Hidetaka Miyazaki believes the game will be completed by more players than others souls games because of the title’s new options that make it more accessible to newcomers. Elsewhere, brawler royale rumbleverse has been delayed from its February release date so that the team can do more to “perfect the experience”.
