The Naughty Dog-developed series has garnered a cult-like following since its first game was released in 2007. When Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was announced, Naughty Dog made it clear that this would be their last time leading the development of a game in the Uncharted series. The developers also made it clear that it would be the last time players would see Nathan Drake starring in a new title. Neither of those things mean the Uncharted series as a whole has to (or should) come to an end. In fact, Naughty Dog even admitted that they would be happy to welcome an Uncharted 5.
“If [new developers] made a great game I’d be excited… I’d want to play an Uncharted I didn’t work on,” creative director Neil Druckmann told GamesRadar. “It’d be a lot of fun.” He went on to say that Naughty Dog would still want to be involved with the fifth’s game creation since they were the ones that brought the series to life. So while there is no Uncharted 5 in the works just yet, it’s clear that Naughty Dog hasn’t ruled it out nor are they against it.
