Uncharted 5 Release Date: In trying to predict when a new game could come out, we usually tally the time of its announcement with how much time the developers have taken in the past to launch a new game in that specific series. But there are a number of complications in our pursuit of being able to predict an approximate Uncharted 5 release date. Part of that reason is that the game has not been announced yet. But that is the least of our problems.
The possibility of a new game in the Uncharted series has neither been confirmed and nor has it been denied. So the fate of the next game in the series essentially hangs in this strange kind of limbo. We like that Druckmann did not entirely throw the probability for a new game out the window, but the question is, does that confirm anything at all reagrding the release date of Uncharted 5?
In short, the answer to that is, no. But what we're hopeful about (going by what Druckmann actually said) is that some great studio is going to pick up Uncharted 5 and work in close collaboration with Naughty Dog to get things right. No, we don't think the new game will be (if it happens, that is) very similar to the original ND games, but it will be worth seeing what an Uncharted game in the hands of another would be like. Another possibility is that if Naughty Dog themselves think about taking up the task of creating Uncharted 5. We know Druckmann has hinted otherwise, but drawing the close on one character's story opens up the possibility of exploring some of the others in more depth. Whoever decides to take up the responsibility of creating Uncharted 5, we know one thing for sure: that Naughty Dog's involvement in the next game will be essential. And then we move on to the next question: when?
Uncharted 5 Release Date
In all honesty, it is entirely unknown if Uncharted 5 will at all go into development in the near future. We know that Naughty Dog is super busy at the time with all the DLC they have planned for Uncharted 4 that will appear throughout the first quarter of 2017. One of these, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, has even gone on to become something akin to a standalone game, which is great news for Uncharted fans. This goes to show that despite what they have to say about Uncharted 5, they do have more story to tell, maybe just not yet. And then there is the recently announced The Last of Us 2, which will probably come out sometime in 2018, we think. So where does that leave Uncharted 5?
Well, we don't think Naughty Dog will be in a hurry with this one, for the future of the Uncharted series has to be handled rather carefully. If Naughty Dog does decide to continue with the series like before, then we don't see them starting work on it before 2018. And if they get someone else to do it, it could go into development even later. So considering all these factors, we don't hope to see or even hear anything substantial about Uncharted 5 Release Date before 2020. A PlayStation arrival is all but assured, but this time around the game could also come to other platforms, depending on who creates it.
