Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

The upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which is meant to be the final game in the Uncharted franchise, is going to mark the end of an era for Naughty Dog, said studio director Neil Druckmann. Speaking with Official PlayStation Magazine, Druckmann said flatly that “we get more and more that feeling of this definitely [being] the end of an era for us as a studio.”

“We’ve been with this franchise for almost ten years now from inception all the way to this point. Luckily, we don’t get too much time to dwell on that feeling because we’re so busy, but every once in a while… you know? I remember when Bruce and I came onto the project. A few weeks later we pitched a pretty new story to the team, kind of like a new direction for the project. A lot of things were pretty rough and just slotted in, so there was an ending but it wasn’t as well defined, and at some point we defined more of the [plot] thread and a more definitive ending, and we did a second pitch for the team.”

Druckmann discussed how this is making people emotional, not just the development team, but also everyone else ever associated with the games- the voice actors, for instance, seem to be pretty sentimental too.

“You could tell people in the room were just getting emotional as we were discussing the specifics of how this series is going to end. That was one of those moments where you felt the excitement and anticipation for our fans to experience this, but a little bit of sadness because it’s ending. The other day we finished motion capture with Emily Rose (Elena) and Richard McGonagle (Sully), and some people got teary-eyed in the room because they’ve been part of this project for many, many years now and it’s wrapping up.”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End launches exclusively on the PlayStation 4 in March.

    Can’t wait for Uncharted 4. I’m also glad they’re able to confidently leave old IPs and innovate new ones.

    • Tech junkie

      When you have a nearly bi-annual release, huge install base and overall poor sales for what’s supposed to be the greatest Playstation franchise.

      I don’t really blame them for giving up on it.

      If the sales percentages continue, Part 4 will probably be lucky to move 2 million copies.

      With sales peaking just over 6 million on part 3, I guess it takes more than an interactive movie to move product.

      I only bring up sales cause you Playstation guys always boast how it’s the most popular based on sales, I personally think it has not relation to how good a product is.

      Where a game like Halo, that requires skill and has acutal game play, not game watching. It peaked at almost 13 million on it’s 3rd release.

      Like I said, sales mean everything to PS fans.

      Or maybe I’m just being a troll stating factpinions in a playstation article. Like you claim too, only mine come from actual numbers, not me claiming that Sony is lying.

      And finally a link backing up what I say.

      Remind you of anyone?
