Uncharted Is Coming To PS4! Surprise? No. Awesome? Yes.

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]

I love the Uncharted games! First game on the PS4 that actually makes me want to buy one...

No release date?

I'm always happy to see an Uncharted game, and I'm with kinkinkaid, in that this is the first game that gets me interested. I guess Resogun too, but that's free on PS+, so I'll have that waiting for me anyway.

Isn't that the same font SquareEnix used for the Tomb Raider reboot?

For me, Nate's personality and the banter between him and Sully has always made the Uncharted games what they are, so I really hope they are still featured...

Give us a release date so I know when to buy a PS4.

Until then I struggle to think of much I'm missing out on.

I'm going to take a wild guess that the teaser trailer is to mislead Uncharted fans for what Naughty Dog really has planned for the PS4. Alas, they're working on a new franchise under the guise of it being a new Uncharted game.

I could be totally wrong but feel it'll turn out great either way. Naughty Dog don't make bad games as a standard.
