Uncharted Trilogy PS4 remaster hinted at by Sony

10 July 2014

Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) chief Shuhei Yoshida has indicated that the Uncharted franchise could be next in line for a PlayStation 4 makeover.

Speaking during an interview with Eurogamer, the executive described Nathan Drake’s PlayStation 3 action-adventure trilogy as a “good candidate” for a next-generation remaster.

"Almost 50 per cent of people who have purchased a PS4 didn't own a PS3, and that's lots of people that missed exclusive PS3 titles like The Last of Us, so it's a great way to welcome those people back to PlayStation, saying this is what you missed," said Yoshida-san.

"There are requests from some consumers for games that were released later in the generation, like Uncharted, which people might have missed," he added. "That would be a good candidate."

However, Yoshida-san made it clear that there won’t be an influx of PS3-era remasters, stating Sony doesn’t “want to flood the market with remade games.”

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was released in 2007 and was followed by two PS3 sequels: Among Thieves in 2009 and Drake’s Deception in 2011. PlayStation Vita also got its own adventure in the shape of Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

The next chapter in the critically-acclaimed franchise, which again features Nolan North as lead character Drake, is due out on PS4 in 2015.
