Naughty Dog Expects Uncharted Sequel, New Jak Entry

It was one of 2007's finest creations, and worthy of a tie with God of War II for our Game of the Year award. Yes, we're huge fans of Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, which is why we're awfully happy to hear that the developer should be planning a sequel.

They didn't exactly confirm it, but here's the quote in question from Next-Gen.biz:

"We developed Uncharted as a franchise. The pulp action/adventure genre lends itself perfectly to serialization and continued episodes which is one of the reasons we were attracted to it," Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells told the semi-official Sony blog Three Speech. "Right now we are brainstorming on what Naughty Dogís next project will be, but even if we donít do an Uncharted sequel right away, you can pretty much count on us doing one in the near future."

Naughty Dog is also responsible for the critically acclaimed Jak and Daxter series, even though the two heroes have split up in the past (Jak II and Jak III for the PS2 and Daxter for the PSP). The excellent platformers often competed against Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank series, and we already have a next-gen R&C. Tools of Destruction was excellent, but what about another Jak and Daxter?

"Jak and Daxter is a definite possibility some time in the future," said Wells. "There is a lot of interest around the office in going back to that franchise and seeing what we could do with it using the Uncharted engine."

All good news. But we really just want more info on that Uncharted sequel, and that's something we may be seeing from Naughty Dog some time later this year...

That would be awesome. I hated how Uncharted got over-looked last year. If the PS3's user base would have been as large as the 360's, this game would have been huge.

I also hope they make it just a lil' longer, and a lil' more replayable.

Uncharted wasn't really overlooked. It may have done better in sales if the PS3's userbase was higher, sure, but it still did quite well. And it certainly wasn't overlooked by the critics. We loved it!

Naughty Dog is one of my favorite developers. Uncharted was amazing and Jak and Daxter is probably my favorite game series out there right now. Jak deserves at least a chance in the current gen. The only problem for The Dogs is that they don't have the man power to do both at the same time or even alternating years like Insomniac does with Ratchet and Resistance. But I guess having too much good IP is a good problem to have.

I would love a new Jak and Daxter game. Uncharted is awesome, too. I hope that Naughty Dog eventually gets to the size of Insomniac so they can get out a AAA game once a year.

Uncharted was a great game! Once completed I didn't feel the urge to tackle the entire game again. I traded it in towards The Club which I regret doing now.

I hope that in the next one they can put in something something similar to COD 4 arcade mode where you can simply select your favorite missions and play them over for a total point value. Oh yes and if they add a multi-player option that would be fantastic!

That arcade mode on COD4 has given me and my friends hours of fun!

It is a great concept!

As for a new Jak and Daxter that would also be great news! This is a series that my daughter and I have had hours of fun playing in the past.
