The debut trailer for Uncharted 4 has premiered during E3.
During Sony’s E3 conference last night, Naughty Dog’s next installment in the action-adventure series debuted its first trailer and revealed the official title.
Titled Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, it will follow protagonist Nathan Drake several years after the events of Uncharted 3.
Forced back into the world of thieves, with the stakes much more personal, Drake embarks on a journey across the world in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure.
First announced last November, the title has since undergone some major creative changes.
Amy Hennig, writer of the Uncharted series, left Naughty Dog back in March after 20 years with the studio. At the time of her departure, it was reported by IGN sources that she was “forced out” of the company by The Last of Us lead executives Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley.
Naughty Dog later firmly denied the reports, saying there was nothing more to be said on the subject.
Just weeks later, Justin Richmond, Game Director for Uncharted 3 and who oversaw the Uncharted 2 multiplayer, also departed.
Todd Strashwick, an actor/writer who voiced an unidentified character in the first teaser trailer back in November, revealed in April that he too had left the project after he was informed his role had been recast.
And earlier this month Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra revealed Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley are now leading the project.
A PS4 exclusive, it is expected to launch in 2015.
