New details may have been leaked in regards to two of the most highly-anticipated games that will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment. According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 7, a few industry insiders revealed that the publisher will be providing some updates on "The Last Guardian" and the tentatively-titled "Uncharted 4" at E3 2014. The company has remained quiet on both exclusive titles over the past several months.

A three-minute long trailer will be shown for "Uncharted 4." Unlike the original teaser trailer, the footage that will be shown at E3 2014 is done "in-engine" with several real-time gameplay sequences. The potential sequel is also expected to take place in a jungle-like setting reminisce of the first "Uncharted" video game. Finally, players can take control of Francis Drake along with the main protagonist of the series, Nathan Drake, during separate time periods.

The development team put in charge of "Uncharted 4" underwent some major changes recently with Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond unexpectedly departing Naughty Dog, leaving the creative director and game director seats. Todd Stashwick also confirmed that he was re-casted, suggesting that the video game may have underwent some major changes. However, it appears that the potential sequel is still on track with the E3 2014 appearance as well as an expected release date time of the summer season in 2015.

The insiders also confirmed that "The Last Guardian," which was previously a PS3 exclusive title, has been "retooled" for the PS4. The impressive-looking title was delayed indefinitely although Sony Computer Entertainment insisted that the project has not been cancelled. In addition to the E3 2014 reveal, the publisher may possibly announce a launch window of this winter.

Naughty Dog, the same company that is also working on "The Last of Us Remastered," is the development studio behind "Uncharted 4." On the other hand, "The Last Guardian" is being developed at Team Ico. Even without both titles, the PS4 has been selling extremely well so far.
