There has been plenty of talk of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End being the last in the series, but Creative Director Neil Drukmann gave a new answer that might shock a couple of people.
Speaking with GamesRadar, Drukmann kicked around the idea of the Uncharted universe still existing, but with a new development team. He seems to be fine letting another studio pick up the next game exactly where Uncharted 4 ends.
"If they made a great game I’d be excited. I’d want to play an Uncharted I didn't work on. It’d be a lot of fun."
"Obviously, we would have a big part in it as the creators of the franchise. We’d just want to make sure they get the essence of it right."
Depending on how this game ends, which seems to be pointing to Nathan Drake still living, it could lead a new studio to create a whole new installment, perhaps Uncharted 5. However the dice rolls, Drukmann is fine with leaving the franchise alone after Uncharted 4: "if there's a studio that can do that then great. If not then it’s okay that this is the last one."
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is set to release on May 10 for PS4.
