Naughty Dog: Uncharted 2 Demo "Getting Closer"
Developers and publishers have been using Twitter to tease everyone lately - we just told you Kingdom Hearts III is not the unannounced PlayStation 3 exclusive we know about - and now, Naughty Dog boss Evan Wells has issued another exciting "tweet."
Not surprisingly, everyone is keeping a sharp eye on Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, as it will not only be a gigantic blockbuster for the PS3 later this year, but it's a sequel to one of the most beloved titles of the generation. Last week, Wells said on his Twitter account- "The most important deadline so far on Uncharted 2 is right around the corner!" That was enough to get everyone talking; some want to believe we may receive the game sooner than initially anticipated. This week, Wells adds more fuel to the hype fire by saying "the demo's getting closer," and that has kicked off a whirlwind of speculation: "when's it coming?" "If it comes soon, doesn't that mean the game is closer than we think?" Well, first of all, Naughty Dog hadn't confirmed a demo before this statement, and secondly, "getting closer" is a fairly vague phrase. However, Arnold got a chance to actually see Uncharted 2 in action for about 45 minutes, and it looked so damn pretty...well, I personally want to believe we'll get it closer to the end of summer than the end of fall.
We'll let you know of any new updates on the development progress, but in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled. Those Twitter accounts of industry insiders can be very helpful; keep an eye on ours as well, as we may drop some hints there in the near future.
