We know that it’s only a matter of time before Naughty Dog reveals its first PlayStation 4 title, but the studio hasn’t been able to resist teasing it during a Reddit question and answer session. Quizzed by a user about its thoughts on Sony’s next generation console, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s lead multiplayer designer Robert Cogburn hinted that there’s an amazing game around the corner.

“If I said anything about what we’re doing right now it wouldn’t be exciting,” he teased. “The PS4 is awesome. It gives us the chance to do a lot of things that we’ve been talking about for some time. You’ll be in awe when you play it.” And now our hype levels are actually through the roof.

Game director Justin Richmond also took a moment to comment on the recent spate of space rumours. Asked if Nathan Drake’s next adventure could take place on a different planet, the developer merely responded, “If only Starlight wasn’t so Savage.” That’s a reference to the in-game comic featured throughout The Last of Us, of course. Grilled again on the rumoured intergalactic title, the luminary added that there’s “not enough space” to talk about it.

Several key members from the first-party outfit recently embarked on a trip to SpaceX, the headquarters of Elon Musk’s private aerospace company in California. It’s not clear whether the firm’s using this as a ruse to cover up what it's really working on, or whether its next game actually will take place among the stars. One thing’s for sure: it’s going to be awesome.
