Earlier this year it was reported that Sony was building a new, yet secret, first-party studio in San Diego. Shortly after rumours began circulating that the studio would take over the much beloved and highly critically acclaimed Uncharted franchise, leaving Naughty Dog only to worry about The Last of Us - Part II. On May 30th, Quentin Cobb, former Game Designer at Naughty, added to the speculation when he announced on his twitter he had had his first day working as a Senior Game Designer for a secret Sony owned studio.
And it got me thinking, what if the rumours were true - what if they actually are working on another Uncharted game. I immediately began speculating for myself about who they could potentially hire, and I think I came up with some interesting names;
1) Christophe Balestra, former Naughty Dog Co-President.
2) Bruce Straley, former Naughty Dog Game Director.
3) Amy Hennig, former Naughty Dog Creative Director & Lead Writer.
What do you think? Would you like another studio to take over the Uncharted franchise, and how would you feel if all 3 decided to join the project?
