Uncharted 3 Already "Looks Amazing?"
We all know a third Uncharted is in the works but could it possibly be at the point where a developer is already raving about it?
According to PS3Hype, Jan Meijroos, "the most famous game journalist of the Netherlands," overheard something at E3 while wandering the back corridors of the show. Evidently, a developer or designer was heard to say quite literally: "Uncharted 3 looks amazing!" Now, this could very easily have been a slip of the tongue, and it was just some dude talking about last year's Uncharted 2, which does indeed look "amazing." Or, he could've been talking about another game and used the wrong title...or, nobody ever said any such thing. But Meijroos posted the words on his Twitter page so either he's lying or he heard wrong, or there's a chance that Uncharted 3 really is chugging right along. Of course, it's far too early for Sony to unveil the game so it hardly wasn't surprising that it wasn't in their press conference, but we fully expect it to make a big splash at next year's show.
We initially want to call this bogus - far too many iffy factors - but sequels really are coming faster these days, even for big-budget projects. Look at Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, for instance. ACII just came out last November and exactly one year from that date, the next entry will be here. You never know.
