Don't Expect Uncharted 4 To Take Any Influence From The Last Of Us

Next year, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will debut for the PlayStation 4 and usher in one of Sony’s most beloved franchises on a next-gen console. The game is being helmed by Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann, who were both responsible for The Last Of Us, but don’t expect them to be bringing any themes from that game over to the Uncharted series.

Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells said the following to Eurogamer:

 “Uncharted is a completely different franchise, and appeals to its audience for completely different reasons.”

He goes on to discuss the two very different tones that each game has:

“I don’t think The Last of Us marks a new direction in tone that all of our future games are going to take on. We’d alienate a lot of our Uncharted fans. We want to keep it a light-hearted romp. I think from a technical standpoint we’ve learnt some things from the Last of Us that will feed into Uncharted – in fact it strengthens our desire to keep them distinct.”

I’m very glad to hear that Uncharted will be keeping with the light-hearted tone that has come before. After the amazing response to The Last of Us and the pretty gloomy teaser that Sony showed at E3, it was starting to look like things were heading to dark territories. Uncharted remains my favorite series that Sony has going, so let’s keep what makes it great intact.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Announced For 2015

Sony ended its big E3 press conference with the announcement that everyone was desperate for, and that is the reveal of the new Uncharted game. Well, Sony did not let its fans down, because they did exactly that.

The new Uncharted game is called Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Not much was shown outside of a quick cinematic that showed Drake lying face first in a puddle in the rain while a flashback conversation with his buddy Sully plays in the background. The graphics looked absolutely phenomenal, however.

What really surprised me is that they seemed pretty blatant in insinuating that this will be the last Uncharted game. Drake and Sully’s conversation kept mentioning their latest endeavor being the last one, and the fact that the game is called A Thief’s End only further solidifies that.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will release exclusively for PlayStation 4 sometime in 2015. Check out the trailer below. [youtuber youtube=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuTBnW2yen0′%5D
