Uncharted Devs Seem to Want to Make Another Sequel: 'It's a World We Want to See More Of'

Uncharted creative director Shaun Escayg has hinted that developers at Naughty Dog would like to make another sequel in the blockbuster series, saying that it's a "world we want to see more of."

As part of an interview with GamesRadar, Escayg offered fans a slight hope that perhaps there could be more to come from the Uncharted franchise when speaking about his thoughts on the topic.

"I think we can say for certain that we can never say never. Yeah. Uncharted is a franchise we love – that the studio loves. I love, and [Uncharted: The Lost Legacy director Kurt Margenau] loves. It's a world we want to see more of. So I can certainly say that," explained Escayg.

While the creative director didn't share any studio secrets, and certainly didn't confirm that a new Uncharted game is on its way, his comments will have left Uncharted fans hoping that there's a chance the series could make a return beyond remasters.

Recent reports indicated that Days Gone studio Sony Bend had at one point been working on a new Uncharted project, and rumours had circulated for some time before that about a new entry in the series. Whether those rumoured projects have continued remains unknown.

Past Uncharted games continue to arrive in new forms, however – Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which includes remasters of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, is due out for release on PS5 tomorrow, January 2, with a PC version to follow.

The game includes a variety of graphical updates including a Fidelity mode, which allows fans to play the game on a 4k display at a 30 FPS target, a heightened framerate patch that allows PS4 versions of the game to target 60FPS, and a Performance+ mode, which targets 120 FPS at a 108p resolution. To see how the game performs against those targets, make sure to check out our recently released performance review for the game.

While Legacy of Thieves may be the next Uncharted remaster to release it isn't the only Nathan Drake-themed content in the pipeline. Next month will see the theatrical release of Sony's Uncharted: The Movie, starring Tom Holland (Nathan Drake) and Mark Wahlberg (Victor Sullivan).
