Wait, Uncharted PS4 May Still Be Releasing This Year?

Posted by Kell Andersen

Drake up your mind

A few days ago, Naughty Dog's community strategist Eric Monacelli took to the comments section of a PlayStation Blog post to discuss details surrounding The Last of Us' impending story DLC, Left Behind. One opportunistic fan made some bold remarks in regards to a Game of the Year edition of the survival horror, as well as the odds of Uncharted PS4 making an appearance in 2014, and Monacelli's responses were alarming.

The wording of his comments suggested that neither of these hotly anticipated products were likely to launch any time soon. Thankfully, the staffer quickly responded to the public outcry by stressing that he was actually referring to a question about Easter eggs in the upcoming add-on. "I answer the questions when replying. The only question was the Easter egg question," he said in a statement to PlayStation Lifestyle. "A lot of passion and gossip happening otherwise."

While not concrete evidence, this clarification could possibly signal that we'll be seeing the new Uncharted sooner rather than later. What's more, it may make some of our New Year predictions seem profoundly prophetic. Are you excited for a next-gen Uncharted? Would you be interested in a re-release of The Last of Us, or are you satisfied with last year's model? Speculate wildly in the comments section below.

Or maybe Naughty Dog is busy making city manager/RTS based on TLOU with Joel's Brother as a main.
For Vita.

That's great news, Uncharted 4 in 2014 would really make that PS4 purchase all the better. I can't wait.

I think it's very unlikely. I bet Naughty Dog would like to be more upfront and honest, but Sony wouldn't let them.

Yes, I would be very interested in a re-release of TloU, because I haven't played it on PS3 yet and a friend of mine who's very cautious with superlatives was practically foaming at the mouth with excitement when he told me about it...not to speak of practically the whole rest of the gaming community. ;)

About Uncharted: the sooner, the better, but in this case, I'd rather have Naughty Dog take all the time they want and then release a product that's polished to the max. :)

Regardless, there's enough killer games to keep me happy in 2014. :)

TLOU should consider discounts for season passers who upgrade. I think I'd have to get it either way tho. Uncharted I'm not so much caring about, but I admit the models look pretty good. The sooner they release it, the sooner they can make their next games

I just hope Naughty Dog has a small team working on something for Vita. It's exactly what the system needs. Well, either them or Insomniac Games.

@RaymanFan2

I actually think the real solutions for Vita are two big third parties with a track record of good handheld experiences... Rockstar and Capcom. It needs an exclusive MH in Japan and in the West an exclusive GTA (I'm thinking San Andreas Stories) could go a long way. I'd rather Naughty Dog focus on PS4 and PS4 only. ND is one of those studios that is just much more suited to high-powered home consoles.

Whatever. We all know that we're not gonna see an Uncharted game this year. He knows it, we know it, everyone knows it. They're just using your basic Marketing 101 here, the same way they used it prior to the PS4's launch. Make it seem like it's a real possibility the game will come sooner than it will, to keep people interested in both the game and the platform. Amazon is given placeholder estimates, and you'll notice games like Final Fantasy 15 has a December 2014 placeholder date. Games like The Witcher 3 has an October 2014 placeholder date. But Uncharted, that one's sitting at December 31, 2015. There's a reason for that.
