Will Naughty Dog Develop Uncharted 5?

Given that Neil Drukmann (the company’s co-president) has confirmed that they are moving on from the series, Naughty Dog will likely not be developing Uncharted 5. In an interview with Buzzfeed, he discussed the famous series and stated, “we’re able to put our final brushstroke on that story and say that we’re done,” solidifying that another developer may take the reigns.

So, if Naughty Dog is not working on the next game, the question remains: who will work on Uncharted 5? There are certainly other studios that can take on the mantle, like the story-driven BluePoint Games or Bend Studio, the company behind Uncharted: The Golden Abyss.

Alternatively, fans could see another developer that may not be as well-known with a fresh take on the beloved franchise. Nonetheless, it should be noted that this latest news hasn’t been officially confirmed to be the fifth installment, so we’ll need to await more information for the time being.
