New details have been revealed for the next installment of the "Uncharted" series at E3 2014. According to a post from the developer's official website on June 9, Naughty Dog confirmed that the new game will be named "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." The project was first announced during the month of Nov. in the North American region.

A trailer for the video game was shown off during the conclusion of the press conference held by Sony Computer Entertainment. The footage provided a first look at the in-engine graphics as it shows Nathan Drake as well as what appears to be a jungle setting. Along with the main character, the voice of Sully could be heard.

Naughty Dog confirmed that "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is going to be rendered at the native 1080p resolution. Furthermore, Naughty Dog will also try to target 60 frames per second. Although the sequel is the first game to be built from the ground up for the PS4, the studio does have some experience with the next-generation hardware with the port of "The Last of Us Remastered."

"Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is now due to come out sometime in 2015. The development of the project was originally led by Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond. However, both directors decided to leave the development team earlier this year to join other companies. Amy Hennig is now working on a new "Star Wars" project at Visceral Games while Justin Richmond decided to unite with Riot Games, the company responsible for "League of Legends."

The new directors for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" are Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, the two individuals that led the production of the aforementioned PS3 game, "The Last of Us." It is unknown if the video game will feature any major changes with the alternations in the development team.
