80% of PS4 Owners Have Never Played Uncharted, Says Naughty Dog

There’s room for even more Nathan Drake in the world.

According to research conducted by Naughty Dog, 80% of PlayStation 4 owners have never played Uncharted, one of the PlayStation’s staple franchises. With millions of PS4’s sold (20.2 million PS4 as of last February), that’s quite a number of Uncharted-less lives.

“We did a lot of research and discovered that about 80 per cent of the people that own a PS4 have never played Uncharted, period,” Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli told MCV. “That was one of the reasons why we thought remastering it would be a good idea.”


Of course, it wasn’t all about newcomers. Naughty Dog also felt it was generally a good time to revisit the past chapters:

“The other reason is we decided we wanted to do it; especially when we got The Last of Us Remastered done, we thought ‘Oh man, this would be cool if we could go back’.”

Uncharted 1, 2 and 3 all join the PS4 lineup in Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, offering an easy entry to the series before Uncharted 4 brings home the finale March 18 of next year.
