Naughty Dog Already Cranking On Uncharted 3?
Naughty Dog has taken home a truckload of awards for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, which is arguably the greatest game of the generation (note I said "arguably," MGS4 fans).
But just because they're the toast of the developer town doesn't mean they're all in Maui or Honolulu, enjoying a much-deserved break. Well, maybe they did do that but now, it appears they're back to work and likely cranking away on a third Uncharted installment. As noted by GameGuru, the LinkedIn profile for Animator David Lam shows he's currently working with Naughty Dog on an "Unannounced Project." For the record, Lam worked on Uncharted 2 and Halo 3: ODST last year, so it would make perfect sense for him to return. Who wouldn't want to be working for Naughty Dog right now? This comes hot on the heels of learning that an ex-Tomb Raider designer had also signed on with the talented development team to work on a particular project. It seems very likely that it's Uncharted 3; even if they wanted to do something else, we can imagine Sony's insistence that a third installment is absolutely necessary. So might we start seeing info as soon as this year's holiday season...?
We just hope they take their time and do it correctly; we don't need an annual title like Call of Duty or Madden. Really, let's not rush 'em. Uncharted must remain nigh-on flawless!
