“There is a lot of sadness.”
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is right around the corner and fans can’t wait to go on one last adventure with Nathan Drake. However, the game is expected to be the last in the Uncharted series so it will be bittersweet knowing it’s Drake’s last outing.
It’s not just the fans who will be getting chocked up. The developers over at Naughty Dog are also getting the feels. Whilst speaking to MCVUK, Lead Designer Ricky Cambier spoke about how it’s quite emotional for the team.
“It kind of varies throughout the studio,” he said. “I came on-board with Uncharted 3, so for me it’s an honour to be part of the team that is sending this guy off. It is actually a bit of a celebration.
“But for other people that have been with him since the inception, there is a lot of sadness. There is a lot of being with him for ten years. Bruce Staley, the game director who started as an art director on Uncharted 1, was working on this last sequence and we were basically sketching in what was effectively Nathan Drake’s final big jump.
“And he was getting a little emotional because that is such an iconic Nathan Drake moment, and here was his last one.”
It looks like a lot of gamers may be getting a tear in their eye when the credits roll on A Thief’s End. The Uncharted series has been a flagship franchise for the PlayStation and helped show off just what the PlayStation 3 was capable of when the original Uncharted was first released.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is due to be released on May 10.
