"Uncharted 5" may be an idea that has not been sent to the dumps just yet, but as to when it will come to fruition is still a massive question. Interestingly, Naughty Dog had something to say regarding this particular matter despite no longer looking to engage on another title.

As some may know, the existing "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" is still considerably a fresh game, though there are those already looking at the potential of a fifth title. This may come in the form of "Uncharted 5," or with whatever working title to be applied to it, but no affirmation has come from it just yet. That is until fans started to find a few hints from the honest statements of Naughty Dog.

According to past reports, Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann believes that though they are to relinquish the saga, "Uncharted 5" is one idea that has not been ruled out yet. Druckmann says that despite no longer being the ones responsible for said title, they surely will still be a part of it - given that they are the original creators. For the most part, Druckmann says that they can at least try to make it so that the next game will not wander off too far from the original and keep the essence accordingly.

To add to this, reports say that the worry on who the protagonist of "Uncharted 5" could be is still unaddressed. This started with the confirmation that "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" will be the last time that Nathan Drake will make his presence felt. From there, rumors have been rather consistent that a new character and a new story will then rise-not necessarily from where the existing title ends.

For now, "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" will have to be the title to deal with, until a more concrete statement regarding "Uncharted 5" surfaces. Stay locked for more news and updates here at GamenGuide.
