Some leaked details may have been leaked in regards to two upcoming projects from Naughty Dog. According to a report from Gamepur on April 18, an insider revealed that the tentatively-titled “Uncharted 4” video game will be making an appearance at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. The video game was first unveiled in late 2013.
Sony Computer Entertainment has remained relatively quiet on the development of “Uncharted 4.” However, the key members of the team behind the game’s production have changed in the last month. Amy Hennig, the creative director, left Naughty Dog early last month. Justin Richmond, the game director behind the same project, also departed in late March. Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, the same pair responsible for “The Last of Us,” are rumored to be taking over the leadership positions of the development team.
Even with the potential development issues, the insider teased that fans will be seeing something amazing at E3 2014 in regards to “Uncharted 4.” According to IGN, Sony Computer Entertainment also mentioned that the high-profile departures won’t impact the “development timeline” of the project. Along with new footage, the publisher could potentially provide a release date window for the upcoming title.
The same insider also talked a little bit about “The Last of Us Remastered.” He first confirmed that the port is not a big project for Naughty Dog. Despite the potential high interests from consumers, Sony Computer Entertainment is treating the software product as “summer filler.” You can find a screen showcasing the original PS3 version from the official “Last of Us” Facebook page with the image added to the top of this article.
Along with “The Last of Us Remastered” and “Uncharted 4,” Naughty Dog is also working on another new game. Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann hinted that the new title could either be a sequel to “The Last of Us” or a completely new franchise. For now, the company is focusing on the aforementioned two projects for the PS4 next-generation system.
