Sony’s not-so secret San Diego studio – which is expected to be continuing the Uncharted series – has been bulking up for a good few months now, and Senior Game Designer Quentin Cobb tweeted about a new addition this week. James Martinchek is joining the team as Lead Animator, having previously worked on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us. His most recent credits include Red Dead Redemption 2.
This is just one of several staffers with previous experience at Naughty Dog, lending credence to the rumours that it will collaborate with the Californian studio on continuing the Uncharted franchise. Despite being pushed in the Twitter thread, Cobb wouldn’t comment on the studio’s name or its current project, but we think the stars are beginning to align now, right? All should be revealed within the next couple of years.
