Uncharted 4 Is Nathan Drake's Final Chapter, Developer Says
"I think fans are going to be happy."
Earlier this week, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End co-director Neil Druckmann suggested in an interview with GameSpot that the upcoming PlayStation 4 game may be the final entry in the series to star Nathan Drake. Now, that seems like a sure thing, based on new comments from another Naughty Dog developer.
"[Druckmann and Bruce Straley], our directors, they have a vision [for Uncharted 4]," lead designer Kurt Margenau said during GameSpot's E3 2015 livestream today. "We are fulfilling that vision and it's going to be awesome. It's Nathan Drake's final chapter, so I think fans are going to be happy."
From our earlier interview, here's what Druckmann had to say on the subject of bringing an end to Nathan Drake's story:
"The first three games were the set-up, and if we were to do one more, how would we top it all off? How would we bring Nathan Drake's journey to a close? Everything we're doing [with Uncharted 4] is constructed towards that; Bringing closure to a very long journey."
Speculation about Uncharted 4 being the final entry in Drake's saga began when the game's ominous subtitle, A Thief's End, was first mentioned. The game's announcement trailer also showed an older, more weather Drake; someone who might not be fit for another adventure.
Even if Uncharted 4 is the final entry in Drake's saga, we would be surprised if it was the last game in the series overall. After all, Uncharted is a tentpole Sony franchise; sales have been strong with more than 21 million copies sold to date and a movie is even in development.
As for who might take over for Drake if there is to be an Uncharted 5, that remains to be seen.
