Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumour: Naughty Dog Remaking TLOU1

As for my personal thoughts on all of this:

  • Never been a TLOU fan, so no interest in this TLOU remake. I also wasn't interested in Days Gone so I can't say I'm personally affected by the sequel being cancelled.
  • Big Uncharted fan, so I'm glad that the long rumored new Uncharted series still seems to be coming, though it's curious that Jason seems to suggest that Naughty Dog themselves are developing it, before we had heard that Sony was building a new studio in San Diego to take over Uncharted, what happened to that studio? Did they start the project, only for Naughty Dog to get brought in and put over top of them, with both the new San Diego studio and Sony Bend assisting?

So I did some research into this. Though the rumors that Sony had a new new studio in San Diego that was working on a new Uncharted have existed for around 2 years at this point, those rumors seem to have been false. The studio in question was actually the small studio that was developing this TLOU remake, lead by Mumbauer; they were never working on a new Uncharted series, they only considered remaking the first Uncharted before it was determined to be too costly. 

So I guess it's good news that Naughty Dog themselves are working on a new Uncharted then. Wonder how long it has been in development for. Presumably since mid 2019 at least, since it says that a Bend team was assigned to work on it after their Days Gone 2 pitch was denied by Sony.

For me, the draw of tlou was the story. That likely won't change and the gameplay is good enough.
I won't be on board if the rumor is true.

This is sad but hilarious how Sony just turns arrogant again once they have a successful gen.
I fear for Nintendo post-Switch era as well



The Last of Us needs a soft reboot. A new story that takes place somewhere else in the same world. There is a lot of potential, but a remake of a game that isn't even that old isn't it.

Uncharted needs to die already. The entire trilogy ended well with 3. Then we got 4, which was good, but felt forced. Let them make something new FFS...

Days Gone 2 is understandable, but the first one still sold well despite negative press. I think if they followed fan feedback, a sequel or another game in that world could turn out pretty good. Lost opportunity, but this one is the least disappointing.

Weird, I always saw Jason as a bit of a Sony fanboy, strange to see him releasing a Sony hit piece. Interesting read though, some highlights:

I have to wonder where you got the impression he was a Sony fanboy.

Please don't... they will try to retcon the story and ruin it.

Some past hit pieces on Xbox, as well as some hyping of Sony stuff that he did in the past. But yeah, it does seem like he is on the anti-Sony train here recently, first calling out Naughty Dog for crunch, now this. 



As for my personal thoughts on all of this:

- Huge Uncharted fan, always felt that the series had a good conclusion as far as the Nathan Drake story goes - yet had room to carry on with other characters. This particular rumour I think its old, hasnt been confirmed as far as I know, I hope it turns out to be true because as far as adventure games go, this series sits at the peak for me. Love to have it back and would be a huge incentive for me to get a PS5, cause at this point eh...

- As for that TLOU remake rumour:

Love TLOU but it still feels too new to have a remake? The remastered version sold a lot on ps4, so I see no point for this. 
And as much as I like both this series, I'd still preffer if ND worked on a new IP, they havent done anything new in a looong time.

Ugh. So not only do we learn that the San Diego studio Uncharted studio we've heard rumors of for the past 3 years was never working on a new Uncharted, but the silver lining that Naughty Dog themselves might be working on a new Uncharted might also be false, as Jason says he is unsure if the new Uncharted at Naughty Dog is still in development. What a sad day for Uncharted fans like myself.
