To Be Developed By One Loop Games
Update: It appears the folks over at NeoGAF have been busy, as one of their posters has found and translated a Brazilian classification document for the game. In it, the file confirms that the new Uncharted game will be coming out on the Playstation Vita. Not only that, but it will involve "casino/card games." We'll bring you more updates as we get them.
Original Story: Another entry in the Uncharted series was always going to be on the cards, but this revelation might not be what many were expecting. A notice from the Australian Classification Board was discovered overnight, spreading like wildfire across various websites, but when the news was reported by Gamespot things took an interesting turn. Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, retweeted the news on his Twitter account, practically confirming the legitimacy of the unintended reveal. As such, we now know that Uncharted: Fight For Fortune is going to happen, but we also know that it will be leaving the confines of Sony’s first party studios, being outsourced to One Loop Games.
Comprising of talent that has worked on a multitude of games over the last decade, the relatively small development team at One Loop have been working on two projects, one of which was recently completed and is the studio’s “first big game” according to their official website. This is almost certainly referring to the Uncharted title in today’s news.
Of course, the classification notice (which you can see above) doesn’t tell us what sort of game Fight For Fortune will be, but we can take away a few interesting morsels of information. Firstly, the title will be multiplatform. This could either be confirmation of Cross Play between PS3 and the Vita, or we could be dealing with a smartphone app of some kind, but right now we’re playing the guessing game on that one until we get some more details.
Secondly, there will be a multiplayer component included, as noted by the consumer advice that “gaming experiences may change online.” Lastly, we know that the title will have a G rating, which moves away from the usual 15+ rating that the series has been awarded in the past. That’s all we know for now. With the cat now prematurely out of the bag, we can certainly expect some news on the matter to emerge in the near future.
