Uncharted may not have had any new releases for half a decade at this point, but it goes without saying that it remains one of the biggest and most important franchises for both Naughty Dog and Sony. And even though the series reached a bit of a natural stopping point with Uncharted 4, there’s little doubt in anyone’s mind that there will be more new Uncharted games down the line. With Sony having established a new AAA first party development studio that’s co-developing a new game in a “beloved” IP with Naughty Dog, there’s plenty of speculation that maybe that next mainline Uncharted game is in the works after all- and even though it’s going to be quite some time before we get concrete details on what it’ll end up looking like, we all obviously have our own wishlists. To that end, here, we’re going to talk about a few things that we’re hoping for from Uncharted 5, or whatever Sony ends up calling the inevitable Uncharted sequel.
This is probably the most obvious point worth mentioning, so it makes sense to kick things off with it. Uncharted 4 very firmly brought Nathan Drake’s story to an end- but of course, there’s more to Uncharted than Nate at this point. Uncharted 4’s epilogue sort of makes it seem like Nate and Elena’s daughter Cassie might step up as a playable protagonist in the future, while of course, there’s also the chance that Sam Drake ends up taking the lead role at some point. It goes without saying that we wouldn’t exactly mind a new game with Chloe as the playable protagonist either, even though she isn’t exactly going to be a new protagonist.
