Naughty Dog: Uncharted Series Likely Not Ending After The Lost Legacy
Even after launching the latest game starring Nathan Drake with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Naughty Dog has more plans to keep the franchise alive in the future.
In an interview with the Eurogamer website, the creative director and screenwriter of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Shaun Escayg, has said that it is likely that the upcoming standalone game will not be the last one of the series.
Whoever played Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End knows that it is almost impossible for Nathan Drake to be the protagonist of a new game, but Escayg gave some suggestions for the future.
Lost Legacy is a standalone expansion priced at $40 that will feature two supporting characters from the other games – and will definitely not feature Nathan Drake. Escayg seems to see this approach as something useful for the future of the series by stating the following:
I wouldn’t say it’s the end. This thieving world is huge. There’s so many characters. Even before we settled on this particular story we were exploring Sullivan, we were exploring Cutter, and pairing each other up, thinking what would be right, what would have conflict, growth, something new, something fresh. And Chloe was the one that kept jumping out. But to say the Uncharted world is done… I doubt that highly.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy stars Chloe Frazer, Nathan Drake’s former partner in previous Uncharted chapters, who is expected to join mercenary Nadine Ross (one of the villains of the fourth game) in India in search of the so-called Ganesh’s tusk.

The game will be available in digital and physical stores starting August 22, exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 4 console.
