It feels as though it's been ages since the world saw a new Uncharted game. With 2017's Lost Legacy being the last installment in the series, and serving as a sort of epilogue, there has been hope on the horizon for a possible Uncharted 5 or at least some sort of spin-off. Sadly, it looks as though dreams of a new game are still being crushed by bad news.
Rumors began to speculate recently that an Uncharted spin-off title may have been in development, with Bend Studio at the helm and Naughty Dog overseeing the project. However, a recent report indicates that this may now not be going ahead. Word came from Bloomberg who said that there wasn't much of a game to begin with anyway, and it was likely that there may not have been an Uncharted spin-off in the first place.
This news came about during a YouTube video from The MinnMax Show in which Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier spoke about the proposed Uncharted project. In his segment on the show, he was asked whether he knew about the project and where it was currently at, to which he said he wasn't even sure it was a thing yet and that it will likely just "disappear," which suggests that either it's been cancelled or it never really took off from the initial idea/pitch stage. The full video is below with Schreier's answer to the question starting at around the 31-minute mark.
This all came about after Bend Studio pitched an idea for a Days Gone sequel, which was unfortunately declined by Sony. Instead, Bend Studio was put on another project which was looking like it could have been the aforementioned Uncharted spin-off, but was allegedly too much to take and the studio asked to be taken off the project in the end.
All of this suggests that a new Uncharted game is not going to be announced for a good while, and it means the series is possibly on a hiatus for now, at least in terms of the games. Fans still have the Uncharted movie to look forward to. Starring Tom Holland as the screen version of Nathan Drake, the adaptation was originally scheduled for a release in 2021, but was pushed back and is now looking to be released in February 2022. It could potentially capture the essence of the original games. If nothing else, it will be a nice stop gap while fans wait for another game to be announced.
A lot of rumors have been floating around regarding a future Uncharted game, and while it's still far from confirmed, it's starting to look a little bit more likely. Some fans don't feel like a fifth Uncharted game is necessary because A Thief's End wrapped up Nathan Drake's story so perfectly, but there's still a lot that could be explored within the world.
When fans last saw Nathan Drake, he had married and retired to a picturesque beach house with Elena and their teenage daughter, Cassie. When Cassie discovers some artifacts from Nathan and Elena's adventures, the parents are forced to come clean about their past and share their treasure hunting stories.
