It seems that according to Uncharted 4 co-director, Neil Druckmann, the title “A Thief’s End” is named that way for a reason.
Neil Druckmann recently talked a bit about how the events of Uncharted 4 will complete the story of Nathan Drake and because of it, will make it a little tricky to bring him back for any subsequent games.
Speaking to The Sun, Druckmann didn’t go so far as to say that Uncharted 4 is the final game in the series, however, he suggested that it is likely to be Drake’s last outing.
“He’s at the height of his popularity, so it’s not a good business decision. But I feel like the best way to honour him is to go out on top, to finish his story,” he told the publication, pointing out that Sony owns the brand and future iterations are still up in the air.
“But with the end of this story, it will be really hard to do a sequel with Nathan Drake,” he added, before hinting that a prequel or a new lead could be in the series’ future.
I suppose we’ll find out exactly what Druckmann means when Uncharted 4 releases later this year in April.
