Naughty Dog is working on a new Uncharted game for PS5, according to a report by Bloomberg.
According to the report, Bend Studio, the team behind Syphon Filter and Days Gone, was originally assisting Naughty Dog with the game’s development. However, out of fear that the studio might be absorbed into Naughty Dog, Bend asked to be taken off of the project. It’s still believed that the Uncharted game is in development at Naughty Dog.
The information was disclosed as part of an overarching Bloomberg report on Sony’s interest in AAA development. The report also seemingly reveals that a remake of The Last of Us is on the cards for PS5.
While Uncharted fans are sure to be ecstatic about the news of a new PS5 game, it’s not all good news. The same report notes that PS4 game Days Gone apparently won’t be getting a sequel. This is despite the fact that rumours have been emerging surrounding the game’s development for over a year now.
The developer behind Days Gone is now reportedly working on its own unconfirmed new IP. Jason Schreier, author of the report and respected video games journalist, took to Twitter to state that he’s unsure if this new game is still going ahead.
While all of the above details haven’t been confirmed by Sony, Schreier is known for being reliable when it comes to insider information. While news of more Naughty Dog games is sure to please many PlayStation owners, others may be disheartened by Sony’s disregard for smaller projects, which are seemingly being cancelled or shelved.
Previous rumours also suggested that Naughty Dog was working on an enhanced The Last of Us Part 2 patch for the PS5. Perhaps this means that a PS5 optimised collection could be on the cards, containing both Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us remaster and an optimised version of Part 2 for the PS5.
Hopefully, we’ll hear more about Naughty Dog’s new Uncharted game at some point in the near future. However, just like any other rumour, you’d best keep your salt shaker to hand, along with some tequila and lime to soothe any potential disappointments.
