Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Remake is in Development – Rumour

A full-fledged remake of the first Uncharted title is allegedly in development, though it’s unknown who is developing it.

As one of Sony’s biggest and most successful properties, Uncharted’s future may not necessarily be in jeopardy, but with the series’ last new game having released nearly seven years ago with 2017’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, there certainly are questions being asked about how long the series is going to remain dormant. According to a known insider though, a new Uncharted game is indeed in the works.

Speaking on a recent episode of the XboxEra podcast, XboxEra co-founders Nick Baker and John Clarke claimed that a ground-up remake of the first Uncharted title, 2007’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, is in the works for PS5. Though the project isn’t guaranteed to happen, Baker said that “it is, at the very least, being very strongly considered.”

Baker and Clarke also stated that they received information on the remake independently, and that they also saw “evidence” that points to its veracity. Baker went on to add that the information in question “doesn’t indicate” that the remake is being developed by series developer Naughty Dog or Bluepoint Games (who developed 2015’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection), but who exactly is developing it is unknown.

Interestingly enough, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann said last year that the studio was “done” with Uncharted, though not long afterward, Naughty Dog stated that it was recruiting to “build future teams for not only new titles but for the legacy of Uncharted.”

Leaks have claimed that a new Uncharted game is being developed by a new studio. It’s been widely speculated that the studio in question is the one that was established in San Diego in partnership with PlayStation Studios Visual Arts. Job listings in 2022 revealed that the studio was “co-developing an exciting new project with Naughty Dog in a beloved franchise.”
