Naughty Dog's Told Fans Not To Expect The Same Enormous Improvement Between The First Two Uncharted Games With The Third In The Series.

Not only did Naughty Dog massively improve on the franchise's existing gameplay, but it also kicked the series already impressive visuals into a whole new world.

But that was two years ago, and now Naughty Dog has warned against fans expecting the same kind of visual leap.

“Uncharted 2 to 3 is still a jump, but its a narrower jump. And going forward, it depends on what we do. There are always ways to improve stuff, always ways we can pull out more stops… like changing optimisations, changing streaming animations, getting more polygons on screen, progressive mesh,” director Justin Richmond explained in an interview with Spong.

“But I don’t think you’ll ever see that same jump again, at least on a PlayStation 3. There was just so much power left over in the PS3 when we made Uncharted 1, that we figured out how to use and really took it to town when developing Uncharted 2.”

It's going to be interesting to see which platform Naughty Dog turns its attention to over the next couple of years. We've always felt like Uncharted 3 would be Naughty Dog's last outing on the PlayStation 3, and these comments certainly indicate that.
