With this month’s release of The Last of Us: Remastered could Naughty Dog be working on a remastered bundle of the Uncharted PS3 trilogy for PS4?
No, says Community Strategist Arne Meyer but “It’d be nice,” he added. Speaking with IGN, Meyer suggested it was something the developer should look into if given the chance, “It’s always nice to find ways to try and expand your audience. I don’t know how we’d ever pull that off but I don’t want to say we wouldn’t do it. I think if everything aligns, we should make an attempt to look into it and do it as well.”
Meyer also spoke on the possibility of a return of the Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter franchises saying that while there were no current plans, Naughty Dog wouldn’t rule anything out. “It’s never off the table,” he said. “It’s not too much time passing, but it’s the same issues we explored with the Jak game. Is it something that makes sense to us now? I mean we still have people that worked on the Crash games in the studio. We never forget our past and it’d be great for nostalgic reasons. It’d be the same reason as why there isn’t a Jak 4: I don’t know if it’s playing to our strengths right now.”
Meyer believes the studio’s strength lies in creating “narrative driven games with strong characters.” He said, “I think, at least for the time being, we haven’t exhausted the possibilities there, but that could change with something as simple as hardware. That’s what drove it before. I think we’re on to something really good though creating character-driven stories so that’s where our focus is going to be.”
It seems to be full steam ahead at Naughty Dog right now with The Last of Us: Remastered releasing this month, Uncharted 4 in development and the hint of a sequel to The Last of Us in the pipeline.
