Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End should be considered as a double goodbye. Not only Naughty Dog plans to leave the Uncharted franchise behind but also this game is going to be the last adventure for Nathan Drake. Therefore, the developers are going into his past instead of his future.
Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley talked to New York Times about their game. „This is the biggest, most ambitious Uncharted — let alone game — that Naughty Dog has ever endeavored to take on,” said Straley. „We want to make sure Drake is sent off properly.”
„It’s a way for us to get into Drake’s past,” said Druckmann. „This is someone who knows things about Nathan Drake that no one else knows. We’re flashing back to when the two brothers were young. They haven’t seen each other for 15 years. It’s a way for us to lure Nate back into the world of adventure. As they go further, we’ll explore their differences.”
Naughty Dog ended up with a much more different game than they originally planned: check out this concept art below! It looks more like a Dishonored game than an Uncharted one, right?
The game is out on April 27, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
