The developer behind the Uncharted franchise has expressed interest in releasing a remastered collection of the popular action-adventure series for the PlayStation 4.
Speaking during an interview with DigitalSpy, Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer agreed with previous comments made by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss, Shuhei Yoshida, that an Uncharted Collection would prove beneficial to new PS4 adopters.
"When we look at the PS4 generation, especially in the US - I don't know what the general feeling was in Europe - there were a lot of people who are new to PlayStation platforms, and may have not played Uncharted," said Meyer.
"It would be a good time for us to leverage all the attention behind it and make it look better. It would be really cool to have. Shuhei really likes the Uncharted series quite a bit, and I think it would be a great way to introduce - I wouldn't say a new generation - but to expand the people that are bound to know Uncharted."
The community guru went on to admit that he wasn't sure if Naughty Dog would be able to see the idea through, but thinks it's a "clever idea."
"Since it's the first time that we're releasing a franchise across different platforms, it would be a good way to provide a way for our familiar players to go back and play the entire series with visual parity.
"I don't know if we're able to do that, but it's a really clever idea. It would be nice to see if we can figure that out and pull that off."
The latest chapter in the Uncharted series, subtitled A Thief's End, is due out on PS4 next year.
