We all know that Uncharted is one of the best video games of all time and game lovers cannot wait more for the fifth edition of the game. The last iteration of the action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game Uncharted has proved to everyone wrong about the future of the series, and now the speculations for the fifth edition – Uncharted 5 (https://www.uncharted5gamer.co) is soaring high among fandom.
Various critics argue that Uncharted 4 was the perfect conclusion to the series, and for a while, it looked like that this would the end of Nathan Drake’s adventures. The Uncharted game has only gotten better overtime. So, naturally, it is understandable that the makers want to cash in as much as possible out of it as they can. Uncharted 4, which was released last year, was a clear pointer and a culmination of all that. But it seems there are more narrations to hear.
The first three games in the franchise were considered to be a part of a trilogy with a self-sufficient story of their own. But, Uncharted 4, which is the current edition of the game to be released, shook up the preconceived notions about the story pattern and has in turn developed the narration and character’s arc even more, coming out as full-fledged people out of the video game characters.
Recent reports claim that Uncharted 5 might have begun production. Developer Naughty Dog has not confirmed that they will be directly involved in the project or not, although Druckmann has not ruled out the possibility of any sort of involvement. It is being speculated that Naughty Dog will remain as advisors for Uncharted 5, as it might go into the hands of some other developers. As the actual creators are quite busy at the moment, Uncharted 5 may not go into development just now. The developers officially announced in December 2016 that The Last Of Us 2, which is the sequel to the post-apocalyptic shooter game that took the globe by a storm. Druckmann used to say before the launch of The Last Of Us 2 that there were pressures to deliver the sequel since they did not want the sequel to fall flat from the success of its predecessor. It is still not known whether we will get to see Nolan North and Neil Druckmann in the future or not. Where on one hand, North has confirmed that he would be interested to return, Druckmann on the other end of the spectrum has clearly stated that it was very much possible for the plot to be explored further with Uncharted 5, but it would not be with Nathan Drake at the centre of the game.
Uncharted 5 will usually follow along the lines of the previous games in the franchise, but since it will be developed by various hands, we can see some improvements. As far as the release date of the game is concerned, all we can say is that the upcoming game will not be released at least three or four years from now, and most likely the Uncharted 5 release date is being speculated to be around in the year 2020.
We hardly know anything about the plotline of the upcoming edition of the game, but it is being speculated that it will be vastly different from its predecessors. Whether game lovers are ready to experience a vast change from the core elements of the game or not remains to be seen. We can only hope whenever it comes out, it turns out to be good.
