Naughty Dog working on new project that's 'on the scale of Uncharted'
For the longest time, it was believed that with Naughty Dog had operated with a two-team structure. With one team dedicated to Uncharted for PS4, and the other working to bring The Last of Us Remastered to PS4, it was assumed that was all the company had up its sleeves. Turns out, that's not entirely true.
"I don't think we ever declared ourselves as having reached the final end goal of two teams," Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells told GameInformer. "We certainly have not, and we might have even changed that goal. We have multiple projects going. We never were able to fully staff two completely independent teams. At this point, I don't think we'll probably get there."
Speaking to the website, Wells added that other projects, beyond Uncharted and The Last of Us, are also in the works.
"We've got the Uncharted project, which we've talked about, we've got DLC for The Last of Us, and we've got the remastered version [of The Last of Us]," Wells continued. We've got other projects in the works that are in the very early stages. We have at least four different pretty significant things going on right now."
Later on in the interview, Wells further elaborated on the other projects, revealing one of them is "on the scale of Uncharted in very early pre-production stages."
"We have the sizable team that it takes to get something like that off of the ground, but it's got a long runway in front of it," he explained. "We have a lot of great ideas and some stuff that is already getting everybody jazzed and excited. So, it's a long way off before we can really start talking about it in detail. But no, [Bruce and Neil working on Uncharted] is not going to impact our ability to keep that stirring that pot."
