But Is It A Sequel?
Sony promised a "shocking" PS4 game announcement last night, and delivered a teaser trailer for... gasp!... Uncharted. We're not entirely sure if "shocking" is the right word for an Uncharted game coming to a PlayStation platform (bleedin' obvious might have been more appropriate), but that doesn't make this news any less fantastic.
However, the teaser is leading some of us to wonder whether the next Uncharted game might not be a direct sequel. Let's review.
By the looks of things, the story will involve a character voiced by Todd Stashwick, who's been left for dead and is out for revenge. Whether he'll be the villain of the piece after a pound of Nathan Drake's flesh, or a brand new protagonist, remains to be seen - especially since Naughty Dog's staffers refused to comment on whether there'd be a brand new character this time around.
There will, however, be a "big jump" in graphics according to Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra.
There's no "4" after the word Uncharted, and no mention of Drake. Could we be in for a prequel or even a... no, I can't bring myself to say it... reboot? Or, perhaps, we're reading too much into a very short teaser and we'll find out more when Naughty Dog's good and ready.
So, how do we feel about this? Did you lose your sh*t? Did you not particularly care? Did you wish the announcement had actually been for Zone Of The Enders 3 WHY KOJIMA WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN US DAMN YOU [go and take your medication - Ed]
