Just when the Drake family thought it could take a well-earned rest, PlayStation fans spot what looks like a tease for a new Uncharted game. As part of the new Live from PS5 ad campaign from Sony, a number of PS5 exclusives (Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Horizon Forbidden West, and Gran Turismo 7, for example) are handed the spotlight in the form of a news channel reporting on events suitable to what happens in those titles. However, one isn't immediately recognisable, and some enthusiasts believe it could be a tease for an Uncharted 5.

43 seconds into the advert, a woman holding a lit torch is spotted walking through a cave. She then pops up a little later on blowing sand off an artefact. In between the two very brief clips, titles like Ghost of Tsushima, Destiny, and Stray are highlighted. Given the strong ties to Sony's own PlayStation Studios, some think the advert is teasing a fifth mainline Uncharted game, with the female character presumably being Nathan Drake's daughter Cassie.

Since third-party titles like The Callisto Protocol and Final Fantasy XVI also appear in the ad, it's possible the game may be Tomb Raider, which does have a new entry coming in the future. However, if it's going to be anything, then Uncharted seems like the most likely bet.

Is this actually a real tease from Sony, though? Naughty Dog very recently stated it has moved on from the Uncharted series as it contemplates a third The Last of Us game. "For us, Uncharted was insanely successful — Uncharted 4 was one of our best-selling games — and we're able to put our final brushstroke on that story and say that we're done. We're moving on," Neil Druckmann said in an interview with Buzzfeed.

A few years ago, there was speculation of a new Uncharted game coming from a Sony San Diego team, meaning Naughty Dog had handed the franchise to a different internal studio. However, there hasn't been any fresh news or rumours on that front for a long time now. As such, it seems like a stretch to say Sony is actively teasing a new Uncharted game through its new Live from PS5 ad campaign. Although, given the fact Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was popular enough to be played by 37 million people, it would come as little surprise if Sony did want to continue the series with a different developer.
