Uncharted 4 will be the last one of the series, according to the beliefs of the game’s lead actor.
Nolan North, who portrays Nathan Drake in Naughty Dog’s action-adventure series, spoke to IGN recently and said he believes the fourth installment, A Thief’s End, will be the last one.
He said: “If this is the last one indeed, and I believe it’s the last one – nothing’s confirmed, but I believe it’s the last one Naughty Dog wants to do, in which case I hope somebody else doesn’t pick up the mantle because they’ve done it so well for so long – but yeah, it’s one of those things where you just have to cross that bridge when you get to it.”
“I like the idea of going out on top so we better do a hell of a job with this one… and it’s already looking pretty good.”
For what it’s worth, the trailer released on Monday, shown above, does reference “one last time” twice during the voiced-over dialogue.
Taking place several years after the events of Uncharted 3, Drake is forced back into the world of thieves, with the stakes much more personal. He must embark on a journey across the world in pursuit of a historical conspiracy behind a fabled pirate treasure.
Earlier this month it was revealed Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley, writer and director of The Last of Us, are now leading the project.
A PS4 exclusive, it is expected to launch in 2015.
