Naughty Dog: 2014 Marks a Special Period in Our History

Posted by Sammy Barker

Woof woof

Holiday blog posts can often hold hidden secrets. We’ll never forget Guerrilla Games all but confirming Killzone: Shadow Fall in a festive PlayStation Blog message last year, and this correspondence from Naughty Dog seems equally intriguing. The bulk of the note focuses on the Californian company’s various achievements in 2013, but it also includes some interesting hints at the future.

“Once 2014 hits, we’ll start frequently rolling out fresh news and information about all of our upcoming projects,” the studio said, referring to the recently announced Uncharted PS4 and The Last of Us: Left Behind. “2014 marks a very special time in Naughty Dog’s history, and we’ll have more information about what that means early next year.”

Common sense suggests that it’s probably referring to the two abovementioned projects, but we can’t help but feel that the developer’s got even more up its sleeve. We’d hazard that some kind of PlayStation 4 port of Joel and Ellie’s heart-breaking excursion is possible at some point, but it’ll be interesting to see whether it has anything else in the works. Regardless of what the developer’s got in the pipeline, though, it seems like we won’t be left waiting too long for all of the gory details.

Please PS4 Last of Us! If there's a game that deserves a next-gen port, it's that one!!!

Haha, I'm not willing to believe it wouldn't! With other great games like Rayman and Tomb Raider getting re-released, it just makes sense. I'd love to see a next gen Bioshock: Infinite as well!

@gbanas92 I think that's going to happen, too. I personally think that your usual 'Game of the Year' editions are going to be next-gen ports this time around. Personally, I'm ok with it, because there have been some great titles this year. Other candidates include: GTA5 (duh!), Beyond: Two Souls, Puppeteer.

I hope that does become a trend. Even starting from the end of the generation and working backwards as far as ports would be neat! A lot of the highest quality stuff came out towards the end so the developers had a better grasp of what they were doing. I agree with those for the most part. Though I didn't think Beyond sold as well as expected? I might be imagining that though.

@gbanas92 All the more reason to give it another go. Although, I suppose the mixed reviews may put Sony off. I guess it all depends how easily the port can be done, really.

Nathan is pointing to himself with one hand and making the number "4" with the other.

Pretty exciting business. The world waits, wonders and speculates instead of complaining about selection. It's also nice to be thanked (in)directly by them after shelling out for TLOU's season pass (I don't think I've paid for an Uncharted once!)

To be honest, I really dont want them to pull a Tomb Raider and just give us a sequel or prequel rather than remaster it for the PS4. To me, they're perfectly fine on the platform they're currently in. Enough of that, I cant wait for what surprises Naughty Dog has for us in 2014.
