Evan Wells has compared the story tone of "Uncharted 4 A Thief's End" and "The Last of Us Remastered." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on Aug. 2, the co-founder of Naughty Dog revealed that the new intellectual property won't mark the beginning of a new storytelling trend from the company. Instead, the next game in the "Uncharted" series will be told in a similar style as the previous installments.

"The Last of Us" provided a more grim and serious tone than previous games developed by Naughty Dog. Although several plot points from the "Uncharted" games are somber, most of the stories are generally light-hearted. For "Uncharted 4 A Thief's End," the studio intends to keep it that way so that they won't be alienating any fans.

However, the sequel is going to take some elements from "The Last of Us Remastered." The development team learned a few tricks from a technical standpoint. The recently-released PS4 port ran at 60 frames per second at 1080p. The same parameters are being targeted in the next "Uncharted" game. Naughty Dog is still going to keep both of the series distinct from one another despite sharing some techs.

"The Last of Us Remastered" was released on last month on July 29. Naughty Dog has hinted at a potential sequel to the critically-acclaimed survival-horror action-adventure game. With that said, an official announcement has not yet been made by Sony Computer Entertainment about a potential follow-up.

The studio is currently focused on "Uncharted 4 A Thief's End." The sequel has a somewhat unusual development as the two main directors, along with others, left during the middle of production. Eventually, Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann took over the director seats. The software product is scheduled for a release sometime next year in North America and other territories.
