Nolan North: Uncharted 3 Is Only "Common Sense"

It hasn't been officially announced but if it isn't common knowledge, it's certainly "common sense" to assume Naughty Dog is already working on a third Uncharted title.

Or so says voiceover industry celebrity Nolan North, who will undoubtedly be back to voice the popular protagonist of the series, Nathan Drake. He doesn't spill the beans - he's really not supposed to, ya know - but there are enough subtle winks in his latest interview to convince the entire world that Uncharted 3 is indeed a reality. In speaking to PlayStation Chat in a recent podcast, North was asked if he's working on what everyone expects. His reply:

"I’m not supposed to talk about that. I’ve been told I can’t say one way or another. But I will ask a question back: Do you think it would be financially responsible of Sony to not make a third game that has made hundreds of millions of dollars for their company?

You’ve just got to use your common sense. What do you think? I’m not supposed to say one way or the other. I would encourage everyone to tap into their common sense."

He goes on to ask us to consider if such a project would be a "sound decision" by Sony and of course, we all know the answer to that. I guess we should probably start requesting certain things of Naughty Dog; what do you want to see in Uncharted 3? Personally, I just want Chloe back. Or...I just want...Chloe's "back." ...yeah. Something like that.

"Sony has no games" I know huh! I am definately regretting my purchase of the PS3. I should have bought a Xbox360 last year instead. Look at all the games I have missed out on in that time. I could have had all those exclusives this past year. Let's see...hmmm...gimme a sec dammit!

Oh, Mass Effect! Yes, I could have gotten that...ermm...couple of Halo games, YES!

Hrmmm, come to think of it, I think I'll stick with my PS3, and get stuck playing U2, GOWIII, Killzone 2, Demon's Souls, LBP, Infamous that have come out since I've had my little black vibrating joy giver. Referring to my Dualshock 3, I lost my black dildo years ago.

Splinter cell actually looks really nice in the trailers, until you see the gameplay. The bodies look realistic, but once you look at the face, it's like a cardboard box.

I also noticed a lot of resemblence to MGS4. We had that 2 years ago and it still looks better.

Let's hope for a Fall 2011 release...as far as I'm concerned, they can reuse just about all of Uncharted 2's assets. I can't imagine making a "better" game next time around.

I can already see them ending the series with a serious bang. They'll definitely let it all shine!

Chloe's definitely got "back." I didn't play the first Uncharted until U2 was nearly out so there was almost no wait, but the wait for this is going to be interminable. Still, at least we know another PS3 exclusive Game of the Year is on the way.

It is common sense, but Naughty Dog is coming out with Co-op maps. They needed the original voices for the new dialogues. For now he probably just voicing the Co-op.

If they didnt announce anything this E3, they probably aren't working on anything. This time they should have headlines "Uncharted 3 graphics and stories outperforms Crysis 2. "

Nolan North does a lot more than just Nathan Drake. He's in a ridiculous amount of video games. The guy is the Unreal Engine of voice acting. Look him up at IMDB to see his body of work. (Google IMDB if you don't know what it is.)

For one, it would be financially IRRESPONSIBLE to not make a third installment. However, more than honestly, I can't see a fourth installment coming into the picture. It'd be great, but maybe a bit too far and too much. And Nolan just screams that they're working on Uncharted 3. Kinda hard not to see that.
And as much as I hate to disagree with you John, I would HATE for Chloe to come back. She's just such a skank... 'Scuse my improper language. I'd like to see some new characters with some of the old. And more than ANYTHING I want good old Sully to be in on the adventure this time. It made me sad when he only showed up for the first and last parts of the game...

Seeing as Naughty Dog is obviously working away at Uncharted 3, I'm sure they will blow our minds even more than they ever have. ND can only get better now that they have a great big foundation to work off of. Hell, Drake's Fortune was a good enough foundation and now Among Thieves is just some extra, extra padding in the mix.
Anywho, I fully trust ND to give us their best and I'm not scared that they'll mess anything up. No matter what happens in their third installment, I'm sure it will receive the highest scores for graphics, character development, environment, storyline, and voice acting.
And yes, it WILL be revolutionary "this time". I'm putting all my money on that one.

I agree that Uncharted 3 will be the last this generation. There were 3 Crash games, then CTR. Three Jak games, then Jak racing. I expect to see 3 Uncharted games then something else. Probably not Uncharted Racing, but some spinoff from the series.

no, ND we do not want another uncharted game we have more than enough TPS as it is!
all we want is a remake of the crash bandicoot series, good old 2D platforming fun!

i cant believe no one has really done a 2D platformer for this gens consoles yet, there perfect for PSN or XBLA titles.
ive been playing the experimental weapons mode in shadow complex and have been having a blast!
closest thing to a 2D platformer we have ever had, and probably ever will on this gens consoles.
oh, what i would give to turn back time to 1995.

If you want to play some 2D platform game, just break out your PS and there you go. Don't want to hook that up? Go to PSN and download yerself some 2D games. There ya go. Many solutions to a simple problem.
Obviously, you've never played Uncharted. AT ALL. And obviously, you have no good taste. AT ALL. As seen by your other comments in the past, you like the oldies. Go ahead, go back to them, no one's stopping you. But, welcome to the future. ND will not remake them. Go cry little boy. Go cry.

no ive never played uncharted, or uncharted 2 i just got the plat for both by watching others play it.
and name 1 2D platformer ps1 game on the AU PSN store.
the only 2 i can think of are pandamonium and oddworld, and neither of those are on the AU store.
and i dont have a ps1, i dont keep 15 year old equipment especially electronics because they can barley last 5, let alone 10, let alone 15 years!

Another uncharted 3 would be great but I'm kinda shootered out atm. A Jack and Dexter would be nice though. But what they should be more careful this time is with the amount of bugs. I found a lot of bugs in the game.

"I'm not supposed to say one way or the other" always means not no. which means yes. XD

Nolan north is epic. slightly off topic, but he is.

The third game will rock, but will it top the first in my mind. (U2 was better technically, and obvi it has online which rocks, but U:DF still rocks harder) but U2 rocks a little bit more because sully came back. YAY Sully!

"Hey, you know that fire stuff that Og created, yeah that stuff is awesome and I can't say one way or the other whether we will ever use it again, but think about it. Use common sense and you will see that it is warm, it cooks food, it gives light, and it's just awesome. Not that I am saying we will use it again, I am just saying that if we don't we may never see civilisation evolve. I'm not saying one way or the other here just use common sense. Do you like cooked food? Would you like to be able to do that with fire? I'm not saying we are going to keep using fire just use common sense."

Uncharted 1 rocked. hard.
Unsharted 2 was amazing. truly epic.
Elena's cute.
Chloe's hot. yes. very.
but!
I didn't really like her tone of voice (or character) that much...
so, call me weird, but between Elena and Chloe I prefer Elena.
I'd much rather prefer a new character instead of Chloe...
