Neil Druckmann has provided an update on the development of the upcoming PS4 exclusive title, "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." According to a report from Gamepur on July 27, the new creative director stated that the production of the sequel has been going well. Fans were initially concerned about the project due to the high-profile departures of Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond, the original directors.
Bruce Straley and the aforementioned Neil Druckmann were chosen as replacements. The two worked on the award-winning "The Last of Us," which came out last year on the PS3, along with the first two games from the "Uncharted" series. It is unknown how much the video game has changed when compared to the original vision.
Neil Druckmann did mention that Naughty Dog is going to be trying something new in regards to the story. A rumor hinted that the sequel is going to be darker when compared to the first three mainline games of the series. Players are reportedly going to play as Sir Francis Drake as well as the series' protagonist, Nathan Drake.
Finally, the creative director also believes that "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is going to end up being one of the best looking games on the PS4. The proclamation does not seem to be far-fetched when considering that the first three games from the "Uncharted" series ended up being showcases of the visual capabilities of the PS3. Furthermore, the ICE Team, which focuses on creating new visual technologies for Sony Computer Entertainment's first-party studios, is located at Naughty Dog.
At E3 2014, the development team showed off a real-time trailer running at 60 frames a second in native 1080p for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." The end of the video indicated a release that the video game is coming out next year.
