Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is due for release quite soon, and while many believe it to be the final adventure in the Uncharted universe, Naughty Dog has other future plans for the series, including more possible spin-offs involving side characters and possibly something to do with the end of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
This news broke out in a recent interview with Eurogamer, where Naughty Dog spilled the beans on what they actually plan to do going forward with the Uncharted series after The Lost Legacy. Seems like they’re dipping their toes in unfamiliar water without Nathan Drake, but the premises do sound enticing.
Shaun Escayg, the creative director, had this to say:
“I wouldn’t say it’s the end. This thieving world is huge. There’s so many characters. Even before we settled on [Lost Legacy’s] story we were exploring Sullivan, we were exploring Cutter, and pairing each other up, thinking what would be right, what would have conflict, growth, something new, something fresh. And Chloe was the one that kept jumping out.”
So we can rule out any future adventures with Nathan Drake, but what about…
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t played and finished Uncharted 4, I will be going into spoilers about the epilogue of the game. Continue at your own risk.
…Nathan and Elena’s daughter, Cassie Drake? At the end of the game, we jump ahead into the far future where we see an aged and retired Nathan Drake living a lavish life on the beach with his wife, Elena, and daughter, Cassie. She seems oddly curious about her dad’s adventures across the globe, and appears to share the same enthusiasm and sense of adventure and peril as well. So we’re definitely not ruling her out of the series just yet.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy arrives August 22, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
