Let us hope they have a 2nd team working on a new Uncharted series focused on Drake's daughter for early next-gen.



Making mediocre games.



Games have become more expensive and development time has increased, but still one game plus dlc in this longer than average generation is kind of strange, even shigeru Miyamoto realiases games more often than that.
I wonder if everything is ok at naughty dog I have been worried about them since they started pushing those lesbian themes in their games.
Anyway only time will tell.



Naughty Dog released TLOU in June 2013, developed an expansion with Left Behind in february 2014, canceled the Uncharted 4 version of Amy Hening in 2014, she leaves with the codirector and Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann took over... a lot of crunch, a lot of pressure releasing Uncharted 4 in May 2016 with around 2 years of development. Bruce Straley leaves Naughty Dog, first sabbath then leaves officially.
Expansion is in development with Lost Legacy, releasing in August of 2017.

When we look at the problematic break up of the two project rhythm in 2014 and we still got a 3 year turn per game that looks still impressive.

Games just need more time and Naughty Dog is not the only developer, from Rocksteady to 343i, CD Projekt Red to Sucker Punch. As long as the games will be good in the end I do not care that it takes longer, especially with Open Worlds binding us longer (not Naughty Dog related for now).

Games take longer to make now. Look at insomniac, they released 3 resistance games, 4 mainline ratchet games and 2 ratchet spinoffs on PS3, as well as that fuse game.

And it's not going to get better when the PS5/Scarlett come out, native 4k becomes the norm and people expect bigger, more complex, more realistic experiences that allow for more freedom and player choice.



Uncharted 4, U The Lost Legacy and TLOU2. Plus you know, remasters. They keeping busy and im liking it.

Bigger question is what has Sucker Punch been doing this whole generation. Their first PS4-game was released a few months after launch, then one small spin-off project a few months later, then nothing for a long time

Aren't they about to release Ghost of Tsushima?

Still no date on it and it probably won't release until 2020, more than 6 years after Infamous Second Son
